The Toffee Tree

Ever since he learnt about the life cycle of a plant, the five year old has been fascinated with the idea of planting seeds, watering them, giving sunlight and watching them become big trees.

Mango, papaya, melon, chikoo and orange. Mustard, moong, lime, tamarind and neem. Every seed that has entered the house has found its way into one of the pots.

But this weekend, it was a toffee that he planted. And now, he is waiting anxiously for it to grow and bear fruit.

Was it from a five year old that C. S. Lewis got all his ideas?

what a lovely story. I used to believe a money plant would bring in the moolah.
And I then worked for a bank :p

I still like to believe money plants bring in the moolah. Different story that my money plants rarely thrive, so I have never been able to test it out.
