Warmer temperatures are here, green grass is appearing, very windy days and nights, allergies, dandelions and even a baby snake in the sunroom are sure signs of spring in Texas! We have not received rain in a long time - actually we going through a mini-drought.
This year we decided (actually, my husband decided) not to have a vegetable garden. Last year it was exciting to see our plants grow and to taste the juicy vegetables, but in dry hot Texas you have to be totally committed to your garden. And we were not. Travel, work and forgetfulness got in the way.
Enter grandma! She is visiting for a week (did I mention she lives in Costa Rica and boasts about her bountiful garden?), and yesterday had the boys planting tomatoes, broccoli, flowers and herbs in containers so that it is all more manageable.
Now 8-year old Samuel is in charge of watering and all other gardening duties!!!
Thank God for grandmas!!
Spring Nature Study that we plan to begin next week.
