I didn't realize it but a bean was left in the sink drain for a day or two under the plug, and when I finally realized and pulled it out, it was full of life.

I remember in school, maybe Grade 1 or 2, when we had to cultivate plants that we germinated from various seeds. I can't tell you how many beans I sprouted in between two pieces of wet cotton wool on a little saucer in the window of my bedroom. Not only is the process of growing this little bean nostalgic, but to have found this little guy sprouting on his own in the sink without sunlight is amazing!

It reminded me of a image I saw a while back on flickr by olivelife... plants in an ice tray. Genius.

I think my little bean is destined for a similar future, along with a few other beans and seeds I've got going on the side.

Inspiring blog Debi!
Love the posts you put up...what catches your eye... the quietness of it and yet the unexpectedness !
Your layer cake was spectacular and reminded me of being a young art teacher (eons ago) holding the odd colour party for students....which always went down a treat!
... the post on the string gardens led me off in that direction and although it was very late I ended up posting it on my blog. This morning I went tracking back to where that link came from and landed here.
I would love to post something from your blog and acknowledge that the link to the string garden came from here at the same time.
Apologies for letting that courtesy escape me earlier!
Best wishes,
