Steven accompanied me on my grocery run this morning. As we approached the checkout lane at Aldi we admired their display of tiny cacti and then he spied it. "Look Mom!" he said in an awed whisper. "A Venus Flytrap!"
I looked. Sure enough, in the back corner of the display was an itty-bitty Venus Flytrap..
He was thrilled to get to see one in real life after having read about them.
We proceeded to continue our way to the checkout, and on a whim I reached back and got it. The excitement was real when he realized he gets to have it.
He held it all the way home and then carefully set it where he wanted it on a windowsill in the kitchen.
If love makes things thrive, this tiny plant should have no problem.
