It's Beginning to Look A Little Like Easter

Mom's Easter Project


Mom's been gearing up for Easter around her house!


She decided to try her hand at growing wheat
to house her adorable little bunny!


I love the contrast of the bright green wheat grass
with the pretty little Easter Bunny!

I believe the hardest part of the project was
finding the wheat seed!
Now she just needs to keep it watered
and administer an occasional haircut!

Tell you mom that I love her Easter display. I used to grow wheat grass every year for Easter when my son was little. He loved to watch the progress of the grass growing in the container. Now that he's 18...not so much! Tall grass to him now just means he has to mow it :-)

Hi DeeDee, It is soooooo cute. Looks like it needs a bit of a trim now. Jude

This is so cute! How long does it take to grow once you plant the seeds? What a fun idea! Tell your mom it looks great :)

Wendy,
Mom called to let me know that once you plant the seeds it takes about 3 days to germinate and after two weeks, you have the full grown grass!

When your mom gives the grass a haircut, she can use the wheat grass in her blended drinks. Or so I've heard, never tried it myself.

Great pictures. I like the way you have the camera angles.

I've been looking for some faux grass in a bucket for Spring but never thought to grow my own - thanks for the inspiration! Hope I can find the wheat seed. Your bunny is so pretty - love the rose in her ear!

aww what a sweet little bunny peeking through the grass. if this year is like normal we'll have a few in my backyard doing the very same thing on their way through the fence to my neighbors garden and they look a lot like yours.

What a cute idea! Looks great...just in time for Easter and fresh grass for spring fever! :)

I had a bunch of 1st graders plant grass in styrofoam cups one year. They drew faces on them, and then they got to bring their characters home and give them haircuts when the "hair" grew. Lol...so much fun!

So cute! We did a homeschooling project once that involved growing grass around a clay river when we studied Egypt and that's what I thought of when I saw those pictures. It was so fun!

Thanks for stopping by my blog - I wish I could come help organize. I love to do it!
