 Flickr Seeds are really neat because they can make nature grow big.
 Flickr After we plant a seed, it will grow to a seedling if it has water and sunshine.
 Flickr After a seedling grows a bit more, it needs a bigger pot to become a sapling.
 Flickr When a sapling is planted in the ground, it can then grow into a tree.
 Flickr If you plant an apple seed, it will someday become a tree with beautiful blossoms.
 Flickr Then, all the blossoms on the tree will soon become juicy apples.
 Flickr Just look at all those yummy red apples!
 Flickr If you are really lucky, you can use your apples to bake an apple pie.
 Flickr Apples are good straight from the tree, but apple pie is really good too!
