A TV program in 10 minutes just made it “click” for a 3-year-old.

A plant gets water from the ground through its roots;

air from under its leaves;

and with sun from the tops of its leaves it turns it all into food!

After watering the flowers on the porch we pulled weeds and found some baby pine trees growing at the mailbox. Maybe we’ll watch them grow up into big trees. We’ll have to ask mommy if that would be okay. She doesn’t really love pine trees very much… but they do grow fast!
