Planting The Seeds

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.

Good thing they were old clothes!
All that dirt

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.

Awesome moments you captured! Is this how she looked when you and I were on the phone this morning? Now I can see why you told her to strip down. Funny. I remember picking Buby up from your house last summer after the kids had been out playing in the yard... he was mostly clean and LP was covered head to toe in dirt. Love how she just digs into everything she does. The garden will be a great joy for her all summer I'm sure.

She was actually a little worse than this when we were talking. After I put the camera away she decided to go back and stomp in one of the mud puddles. She has no fear of dirt, she literally throws herself right into it.

Ta-Da is my favorite picture.

And puddles are lots of fun.

Can't wait to run in the rain with Princess again this summer.

Miss you, Nana
