I relish the fact that my 6 year old son, Chase, is taking a special tendre in growing plants. And I have his school to thank for that. :-D In my heart, I know that he's a bit bothered with all the calamities such as the the earthquake and the tsunami in Japan. He's also well aware of that Mt. Pinatubo is something close at home. And experiencing a volcanic eruption is a reality for most of us. He actually asked me few days ago if trees can prevent lava flow. I told him, with much optimism, that in some way they can. So he really wanted to do his share of planting. He's even asking for his own set of garden tools. ;-D But since we don't really have our own garden per se, we told him that he can plant all he likes in his grandparents' farm lots in the province, so his namesake Farmer Chase came about. ;-D
This time, they were asked to bring a plant for their "Green Day" celebration. We didn't have a small potted plant, so we had to buy on our way to the school.
I think it looks Christmasy. Instead of getting Poinsettia, I might get a few more of the Bromeliads. ;-D

|Chase goes to Preshoolville as a Prep (Kinder2) student. Last year, for the culminating activity of "Growing Plants" month, they went to Kapu Garden. And this was a photo taken of him holding a bromeliad. Haha. ;-D Caught in the act. Photo Credit: Teacher Rej|
|Coincidentally, he chose to get a baby bromeliad too, which sells for Php 100. ;-D|
|It's such a pretty plant, so I decided to depot it and grace our side table with it. I think it compliments the whole Christmas-y theme of Red and Green. ;-D.|
