Yes, some days are better than others and some days are in a whole new category of wonderful. Two weeks ago I had such a day – a very special day.
WARNING: GRAMMY STORY COMING
My grand boys were here and that doesn’t happen too often. It is more common for us to travel to them and play by the ocean and enjoy all the California sun.
On the second day of their visit, H said, “Grammy can we play in your potting shed?” Music to my ears! Let’s do this!
A few weeks before they came I took some cuttings from the African Violet that H had started on a previous visit, (read about that visit here) and put them in water to root. They were ready for potting! H’s violet was even blooming! He was thrilled to be back in the potting shed and it was great to see him looking around and commenting on all the things he remembered! He was ready to get started!
Now C is only 2 but I wanted to bring him in on the action too. This little super busy adorable two year old approached the potting process with deliberate calm – checking everything out. Once he saw the dirt drawer, the look on his face said, I am a gardener! He was all in.
TIME FOR FUN.
H know the ropes and is ready to go. First up let’s decorate a pot!
TIME FOR THE ROOKIE TO GET STARTED…
GARDEN PLAY THYME…
Unfortunately, we couldn’t be out in the garden very much while they were here as the temps were soaring in the mid 90s but we did do a garden walk or two.
He’s too small to play in my Potting Shed, but our little is just perfect in my lap!
The day before my boys came, our local rose society, hosted the IL IN District Conference and Rose Show. Oh the blooms we saw. Some were so perfect they looked artificial. Here are a few, but if you’d like to see more and read about the weekend, click here.
Below are John and Donna Hefner’s award winning blooms. Can you even believe these!! The Hefners are the exhibiting masters!
