Pictures and Mother’s Day

As promised here are some pictures of the gardens coming into their own. Got my potatoes, beans and sunflowers in the ground today, and they got a good watering in from the late afternoon rain.

Mothers day is this weekend, I took the opportunity of a sunny hot afternoon to do a fun flower pot craft for the grandmothers. We painted thumb print ladybugs and added some vines and a sun. We will plant some sunflower seeds in the pot.

The kids love doing anything that involves making hand or foot prints, which means they get to have outside water play to clean up. I think they like the water more than the actual painting sometimes.

 

Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Good night!
