Day 3: Signs Of Life

A few days ago, I tilled a small portion of the lawn and planted some flower seeds -- Mexican Sunflower and Cosmos. I really don't know much about gardening but just the basics. I love taking photos of flowers and I guess this is one way to take more photos of them.

Well, I read quite a few from the Internet about growing Mexican Sunflower and Cosmos. They say they're one of the most easiest flowers to grow even from seeds. They're able to tolerate the warm/hot climate and are not choosy on soil type. Once they have started growing, they need not much care. A little water here and there in awhile just to moisten up the soil and they'll thrive.

So, when I woke up this morning and checked the little lot of tilled soil and checked for signs of life from the seeds that I have sown. I found cracks on the top soil something similar to these.


I wondered if those cracks were made by the ants that were grazing over the top soil the other day. By looking closer into the cracks, there I found signs of life from the Cosmos seeds but none yet from the Mexican Sunflower (being optimistic that in a few days they will show some signs of life too). Here's a little closer view of one of the cracks:


Now, that's a very wonderful sight!
