Time to plant...

Not only do I love to make cute little fabric flowers but I also love to garden as well, especially flower garden. I don't have as much time to do this with two little ones as I used to, but just the same every year I take out my pots to refill full of flowers to enjoy all summer long. My little 2.5 year old, A, was helping me yesterday to fill the pots with potting soil and she was having so much fun just shoveling and playing in the dirt. She got dirt in her hair and fingernails and on her face. I think she wanted to see what it tasted like (ewww). We both just loved it!

We finished up our flower pots and I planted my little vegetable garden and herb garden. It is just one little area up close to the house. I call it my kitchen garden. We are also working on our fairy garden in the backyard, it is a wooded area on our little lot that we have planted lots of plants in and we are collecting little fairy houses and things to make it a fun play area for the girls. All of this fun outdoor play with dirt and flowers inspires me to want to create more Sweet Little Blossoms. A little piece of my favorite things for you to enjoy! Have a great week and enjoy spring!

I love growing fresh herbs! They make summer dinners amazing!

I have chives and basil growing like mad but in the shade of a large tree. Pretty hot in the sun around here these days. Supposed to hit 100 today. Ugh.

Love to see your flower pots and vegetable garden and good to know you finished it and enjoy it too. It's lovely to see Spring booming isn't it.

This reminds me I need to get some new flowers for my front door planters (even though my daughters accuse me of having a "black thumb," I still love planting flowers! ;-D

That sounds really cute, the fairy garden!

Someday when I am living on my own I want to have some potted gardens of strawberries and such :)

Gardening is good for all souls both young and old!

Me, too! We always grill salmon, mahi mahi, chicken and lots of veggies in the summer so the herbs are great to season them! Mmmmm!

Tina Puro-Douglas said...

Yikes! I am not ready for that yet! Chives grow like crazy hard to keep them down!

Tina Puro-Douglas said...

Thanks Ana, I will add piccies soon! :)

Tina Puro-Douglas said...

You are probably just busy, I love flowers but I certainly have failed at keeping them thriving at times!

Tina Puro-Douglas said...

So true, very relaxing for me!

Tina Puro-Douglas said...

definitely curious that is for sure.

Tina Puro-Douglas said...

That would be wonderful, it is fun to eat your own little things that you water and keep growing, something about the simplicity of it is rewarding :)
