We finally got out and planted all of our seeds this morning. Lilypad Princess, Lilypad Dad, and Uncle Dave did lots of hard work getting the new garden ready and planting some additional seeds in the exisiting gardens. In the new garden we planted a shade flower mixture since it is mostly underneath the trees. By the back corner of the house we added some basil and cilantro to the chives that are already growing. On each side of the kitchen door steps we added lavendar, and we surrounded our butterfly bush with a mixture of butterfly attracting flowers. I cannot wait to see all the hard work pay off, and I know that LP is going to spend hours watching the butterflies in our yard.

Fun with water
Good thing they were old clothes!
Hopefully it won't be long before I'll have some pictures of the new plants and flowers to add to the blog as well.
