Maddie Grows A Pumpkin...Or Two

In late spring of this year, a pretty little vine began to sprout beside Maddie's front doorstep. It

seems that some of the seeds from her Halloween Pumpkin had planted themselves in the dirt,

then lay dormant all winter.

With much curiosity and wonder, Maddie and her family watched as the little vine began to grow

longer and longer. It seemed as if it would go on forever...but nobody disturbed it!

In a while, some pretty little orange blossoms came on the very long vine, followed by some tiny green

pumpkins. Maddie watched as the tiny green pumpkins began to grow larger. Maddie watched

as her pumpkins grew bigger, but not too big...

When all was said and done, Maddie ended up with three of these precious little pumpkins that

were picked off her vine! What a nice surprise! Instead of Halloween Pumpkins, this year

Maddie had some Fourth of July Pumpkins! Who knows, this may begin a new tradition at her

LOL-What a great tradition that would be. In our area-NO seeds that were left outside over the winter would sprout! I'll bet she was thrilled! Diana
