My little gardeners.

First of all, it's a new day ------ yay!!!

Over the weekend, and what a beautiful weekend it was, we went to a few places looking for mulch and a few flowers for our front yard landscape. I don't want to spend too much on flowers this year . . . I usually end up spending about $300-$400 each summer . . . I am a sucker for flowers . . . anything green and growing, and even half dead flowers I sometimes buy because I feel sorry for them, anyway, that's another post. I do want great curb appeal this year, so we're concentrating on the front yard mostly, and trying not to do too much in the back yard this year. (We'll see how well I stick to that!)

Anyhow, the kiddos had a great time looking at flowers. I love it that I get to get them excited about picking out, and planting, flowers. I just adore gardening. And I think they might have that little love growing inside of them now, too.

I told Noah that he could find one flower to pick out, buy and take home. So when he did find that perfect flower (a gerber daisy which was covered in mud from the rain), he was quite proud as you can see.
Then we headed to another place and Maia found her flower(s). She, too, was very proud and excited. You should have seen this little wobbly girl walking around carrying these two flowers. She seemed to have caught everyones eye. She is adorable, I must say. But I guess I'm her mommy, so I'm suppose to say that, right?


Aren't they the happiest little gardeners you've ever seen?

I'm sure you never get tired of hearing this, so I will say it again-
Val, your kids are so stinkin' cute! I just want to pinch their lil cheeks right off!!!
I am so glad you are raising a couple of lil gardeners! Gerber daisies are one of my favorites too! I have them in my vase in my Bug.

Your kids are as pretty as the flowers they are carrying. I am sure you already know that though. Very cute!
