It started with a few seed packets.
Then she negotiated for a couple of six-packs of flowers.
The warm weather got her in the flower gardening mood.
With very little supervision she planted everything in the front yard.
Directly in the path of the mower.
And the curb where people walk and extra cars park.
“Because they needed full sun.”
And Dad said they would be prettier in the front yard.
Not a great plan.
I gently suggested that she could move things to the backyard where there is full sun.
And we could remove the sign that I thought bordered on bad manners.
Since I have given up yardwork for
Dad could build a small raised bed and it could be her own little garden.
One quick trip to the store and a bribe of another six-pack of flowers and she was all in.
I said “Take some pictures of your new little garden.”
She said “I want to take some pictures of the azaleas and cherry tree for Grandma.”
I showed her the macro setting on the little digital camera.
She went outside and came back with these…
Her cute little flower bed. Thanks Dad.
Green trees and blue skies!
Grandma, here’s the cherry tree in the front yard she wanted you to see.
One of our most favorite things about living in the South are the azaleas…
I have to enjoy all this from inside because the pollen and my allergies can equal migraine right now.
She even captured the neighbor’s dogwood tree.
I think we have a budding photographer on our hands.
In case it’s not quite Spring at your house, hope you enjoy Scary Baby’s photo shoot of what’s happening around our house!
