My seeds are sprouts!!!
I can't tell if these are zinnias or marigolds. I had the empty seed packets under each container, but a very curious 22-month-old and a very curious 4-year-old moved them elsewhere.
My father-in-law told me he can identify the flowers by the leaves when they get a little bigger. Thank goodness Mark's parents are master gardeners.
Mark's dad also told me it's not too late to plant a garden for summer fruits and vegetables. I'm hoping to till up a small plot in my backyard to plant squash, tomatoes and cantaloupes.
I had to buy another watering can this weekend. The boys always fight over the one I had so I figured my life would be easier this summer if I had one for each. The green one is from IKEA and the red one is from Target--it's new.
I'm embarrassed to photograph my front yard. There are more weeds than grass and flowers. If we get it weeded this weekend, I'll show you the hardy gladiolus bulbs I planted back in January. I'm happy to report they have made an appearance. They haven't produced flowers yet, but I'm hopeful they will. It's a good sign to know they are alive even if they don't produce flowers this year.
We're on the lookout for a new weedeater. I'll let you know how that search goes.
I also have some flowers to show you in my backyard. The irises are starting to bloom and my peony is beginning to gets some buds. I can't wait to see the beautiful flowers.
That's all for now in my adventures in gardening.
