I love my garden, I may have said that a time or two, but I think it’s worth repeating. There is nothing better than watching things grow. I planted my vegetable garden, and it snowed, everything died, I planted it again, it snowed again, I think the only causualties this time are the tomato plants so I’ll get some new ones and plant again.

The flowers are blooming, Columbine, my absolute favorite, I think I have it in every color in my garden. My bachelor buttons, they always make me smile because they remind me of my grandmother and the little poem she used to say when I was a kid.






The absolute best thing about a garden is sharing it with the kids. Mo and her sister planted flowers together. It was a amazing, Mo is not interested in planting with me but when it comes to Ivy, she will do anything Ivy wants. It’s very sweet, I wish I would have gotten a picture.. I did get some pics of Ivy working in the yard, don’t call child protective services, she really wanted to shovel!




So I planted and weeded and sang songs to Ivy while she pulled the blossoms off every flower she could reach and brought them to me for me to smell before trying to feed them to Clementine.

As usual, Clementine was unimpressed.

  3. Oh, God....that shovel is 5 times the size of Ivy! I love the fact that she pulled the blooms off for you to smell and then fed them to the dog. Typical....ya gotta love that.
