Every home owner has the project list. Not the one that is full of things that are do-able or must be done tasks. I am talking the redo, tear down, gut, change up, list...the list you might choose one item from to attempt to tackle once a year. Right now we have our master bathroom gutted. And it is all my fault that it sits at a standstill. I am not someone who is good at picking out all the little things. I need direction and choices. I am also not very good at giving my husband time to work on the project. Anyways...let's get back to the point.
One of the things on our list will be to relandscape our yard - SOMEDAY. Someday we will have help to determine which plants and bushes will do well and look just right. Or someday we will have the time and energy to read and learn so we can figure it out on our own. But for now, I have enough on my plate just opening up a cookbook to read what I should pile on my troops' dinner plates.
My point...this year the boys AND Sydney ventured to the flower store. We picked out a few different kinds...these stinky flowers because the rabbits don't like them.
And of course some "snap dragons" because the boys have big expectations for those buggers.
And we returned home and got our hands in the dirt and planted. I started out trying to guide them on where to place the flowers and then I realized - I am a mom of two boys who are kneeling here with me and helping and learning. And why not let them just go for it. So I let them dig and plant wherever they thought and followed behind making sure they were placed deep enough and were planted strong enough. So we'll go with it and I will post a picture in a few weeks of the outcome.
Meanwhile, while the boys planted, Miss Sydney sat kicking and vibrating in her little chair. Finally, dozing off on this glorious spring day. I was in heaven. Life couldn't have been better - scratch that...if my allergies could have not played a role in the afternoon - that would have been bliss!
