I particularly like this activity, because the process of planting is messy, and requires a roll-up-your-sleeves don't-care-if-i-get-dirty get-the-work-done kind of attitude. Then as it grows, it requires regular attention to ensure that the process is sustained. It's a lot like life and learning -- and while I've tried to communicate the parallelisms to Roo, I just got a patronizing smile. Yup.
I don't know if it's just me, but Layla and Roo look like sisters in the Black and White shot below. :)
