Yesterday my daughter picked me up and we went to lunch.
He is playing soccer. Can you imagine? Soccer for a just-turned three year old? His birthday was last week.
My daughter tells me they start playing at 18 months! I was aghast.
The sun was shining so brightly yesterday. I love walking into the kitchen and seeing the light through my colored bottles. Such a simple thing that brings me a lot of happiness.
I walk out and look at all my containers on the patio. Then I usually sit down and gaze at what is in front of me, thinking where I might put this pot or that container.
Half the fun is always in the thinking and planning stage! I’m really itching to get my hands in the dirt.
I did bring some dried cone flower pods from my daughter’s back yard and planted them in several of my containers. I hope they come up, as I just love cone flowers. Hardy perennials that are such fun to grow.
Purple is a lovely contrast color in the garden. As is blue.
The darkness of the colors look wonderful with any shade of green. Especially the chartreuse sweet potato vine that is an annual.
It makes me so happy to watch the birds. One of the true delights of being a gardener and nature lover.
I’m hoping to make Andrew a gardener and bird watcher. He’s a bit young right now. But soon we’ll be making fairy gardens and I think he’ll really love that.
Happy Sunday. Hope it’s a fun day!
