  1. Poor Porcupine – I can identify with him. It is a family joke that I am the sunflower ‘killer’…I can grow just about anything except sunflowers. I think I will read this book and give it one more try!!

  6. We grow lots of things in our garden, and some with more success than others. This sounds like a perfect book for us.

  7. I need this book for myself to learn how to grow flowers! LOL! I can manage with veggies, but don’t have any luck with flowers 🙂 Seriously, though, it sounds like a cute book that my kids would enjoy. 🙂

  9. My niece would enjoy this book. I have let her plant seeds in a flower bed so she knows how to grow nice flowers. Plus she is an animal lover.
