seeds of love

There's a little boy at school who is sweet on Meg.

He keeps bringing her little gifts.

First it was a super polished chestnut.

Then a handful of striped-lid acorns. (I've never seen them before but they look great- all green and tawny.)

Then a little bunched up bag of morning glory seeds.

And today she came home just raving because she'd been given a sunflower head full of sunflower seeds. And he told her it will be a white sunflower.

I googled.

They exist!

....in Italy, but still.

I don't know Meg's beau. I will have to check him out next observation day.

But I have to say- I think I like this kid!

I'm Italian and I never heard of Italian White Sunflowers! 0_0
The things, from your own mother land, that you can discover in a blog wrote by an Australian in Japan... is only me who is puzzled by that? :)
By the way, the boy seems sweet. How cute the little gift technique!

He sounds like a sweetheart especially if he comes bearing such sweet gifts as sunflowers and morning glory seeds and the polished chestnut won me over right there. : )

Definitely give him a looksee on the next observation day though. : )

PS, the title reminded me of that old Tears for Fears song.: )
