Instead of watching the boys while Arielle went to work, THIS morning, I joined them for a bit of a Spring Field Trip. It may be 4 degrees outside, but we were warm and had our hands in the dirt!!! Spring is coming. This was a fun outing to Ken's Garden Center.
It was a fun morning. I was a bit taken aback when the clerk said to remember not to put anything in the ground until June. Reality. It was a good reminder as I was thinking I was behind on seeds. LOL
This is a boy after my heart. He really, really wanted to plant watermelon. I have tried in various greenhouses for the past 3 years and know that they just don't set... and I would like the grands to enjoy gardening. We poured over the seeds. Finally, his mama found a pretty packet of herbs with flowers.

I had never been inside to look around, and Arielle was looking for a specific plant so in we went. The boys helped me pick out succulents for the little pots Krista and the kids brought us Sunday. Benny was fascinated by the Venus Fly Trap...so I bought that too...now I'm wondering if they HAVE to have flies to eat to live and if I have to go hunt flies in the middle of
Grandpa is not feeling well. He is nauseated and simply spent most the day in bed. He's not complaining of shingles. I think he caught the flu - somewhere? Not sure where.
*If I use the word SPRING often enough, I am sure warmer weather and flowers will appear!
