You may remember some months ago we took part in the Kids Grow Wild challenge, part of which was planting and growing sunflowers.

Well, our sunflowers have got taller and taller and finally we have our first flower – Daddy P won that part of our race.  My son and I are neck and neck (they are nearly as tall as me at 5′ 6”) but we are still waiting for our sunflowers to burst into bloom!

Hopefully they will explode into bloom very soon, and be worth the wait.




Over 40 and a Mum to One

A Mum with a 13 year old son, enjoying life and having fun as my son travels through school life. We love to get outdoors whenever possible and make the most of the world around us. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. We took part in that challenge too, but sadly due to the heat, my inability to remember to water them and then…umm…flooding last week ours did not do as well as yours! We will have a proper go again next year though, yours look fab 🙂

  2. Love Sunflowers and really must get some seeds and grow some next year with my monkeys! Popping by form #countrykids.

  3. What a great thing to do! I miss growing veggies and flowers with my kids and this makes me want to grow sunflowers too in the future when we can!
