Cover ideas

I spend the evening plugging in the illustrations for my book into the layout. It felt great to finally see the illustrations matched up with the correct text, and I had fun sizing the images appropriately.

With the layout of the book nearly complete, I am now directing my focus towards the cover of the book. It seems to me that I have three options: 1) text only, 2) text with a photograph, and 3) text with an illustration.

I hadn’t really considered an illustration until my husband suggested it, but now I’m thinking it might be a simple way to represent the book.  I already have an illustration of a small sprout growing out of a patch of dirt that my husband liked because it could represent the beginning of the creative process.  What other images do you think would work as an illustration for the cover?  Any suggestions?
