I have 3 black pots that sit on my kitchen window sill, in which I usually grow spring onion, basil and mint. I look at them everyday. They make me smile. I always pluck a few leaves here and there to use in my cooking and as garnish on top of my dishes.
The other day I realised that I don’t use my mint very often AND I wanted to have chives instead.
So I asked my 9 year old son to do the job of moving the mint to a bigger pot outside, and to transplant some chives from the garden bed.
He did an OK job. He didn’t space the chives plants out very well. He didn’t put in enough soil.
But as you can see, he left me some EYES.
Why did he do this? Who knows! Just to make me laugh? To make me extra happy?
It’s pretty hilarious. And weird.
Now, every time I peek over at my herbs, I remember how much I totally love my kids and the colour they bring to my life.
