Gardening Day

One of the advantages (okay, there are a few) to living in North Carolina compared to Montana is that Spring comes so much earlier.  It's my favorite time of the year!  Living in a new place that was occupied for the past 7 years by a bachelor leaves our yard wide open for some color and creativity.  So this past Saturday we got to work.  The children love to help me do yard work and it is so much fun to work together.  Hey, they even get excited to pull weeds!  (Of course it was hard to explain to Evie which were weeds and which weren't). We planted a few tulips and daffodils in our front yard and snuck a few lily of the valley in a shady spot next to the back porch.  It will be fun to add to our collection little bit by little bit and add beauty in the process...

"This is my Father's world, the birds their carols raise, the morning light, the lily white, declare their Maker's praise. This is my Father's world; He shines in all that's fair; in the rustling grass I hear him pass, He speaks to me everywhere."
M. Babcock, 1901
