The Princess and Farmer Dad

Here area couple of pictures of Princess
and Farmer Dad working in our tiny little backyard garden. This is the first year she has been more help than , well not, and it
has made gardening fun again. Yesterday we went with our friend to a garden center to pick up some annuals for our hanging baskets, and Princess picked out several
plants for in her "butterfly garden".
She really looked at each label and picked out plants with a butterfly picture on them.
Without being told what to look for!
I was very impressed at her selection.
We will finish planting them today and I'll
post some pictures of our results. We still do not have all the dreaded plastic toys out of the yard, so it's nowhere near completed,
but we are making progress.

You have a beautiful garden area. Isn't it fun when they reach that age where they can actually help? Good going to Princess for picking butterfly-friendly plants!

I always enjoy your garden pictures! Whenever I want to do a garden my husband says 'don't we'll be moving soon..."...LOL

Maybe we can plant a butterfly garden, it'd be likes by a new owner....

Thanks for the idea

Great photos. Your garden looks wonderful and you are making great progress. I'm going to be terribly envious when you start posting pictures of actual vegetables.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
