Hello everyone! I'm glad to hear there is an interest in "Show and Tell Friday." Some of you mentioned not knowing about Mr. Linky. Since I'm awful at explaining things, I'll show you instead!
My friend, Sandra uses a Mr. Linky for her "Slow Cooking Thursday." Click on the link, scroll down to the bottom of her post and you will see a box for typing in your name and the link of your post. On Friday, everyone will be able to click on your link and see your "Show and Tell." Very easy!
I got a wonderful surprise in the mail yesterday. My friend, Anita sent me some some of her flower seeds all the way from Germany!
She made the prettiest little card holders for them too...
Here is what she sent: Columbine (2 varieties), Marigolds, White Marigolds, Sunflowers, Hollyhocks, Honestly, Cosmos, Love-in-a-mist and Pumpkins. Thank you, for your thoughtful gift, Anita!!
So, where are we going to plant all of these seeds?? Anita's package arrived just in time. Last week I had a small corner of the backyard dug up for planting flowers.
Here is a "before" picture with all of our winter bird feeders still out...
Here it is now. We kept the birdbath and added two stepping stones. This will be Grace's garden to take care of.
Benjamin has a spot for the Sunflowers he grows every year.
Emily is very excited about her new garden. It is actually my old compost box. I'm a composting failure, please don't yell at me. ;0) Emily is going to grow peas, carrots, radishes and four o'clocks.
As you can see, we will be very busy this week!
I'll be back soon though. Until then, I'll be in the garden!
