This weekend I finally started tackling my spring planting. Amazing how flowers can brighten up your outdoor living areas. The kids love helping out around the yard so were thrilled to come with me to Walmart to buy some new pots,hanging baskets, potting soil and flowers to plant – like petunias, and marigolds – which we need badly as they keep the bunnies and squirrels from eating my petunias.
The kids had a blast picking it all out with me – and they love when I let them pretend to ride the tractors in the store.
Kenzie goes for a glamorous pose riding her tractor – yes she loves the camera!
And they helped with the planting. These before and after photos show just how badly we needed to add some flower power.
We also bought 2 of these phenomenal coil hoses – if you’ve never had one of these, I highly advise you buy one. They are great for watering and I love how they bounce themselves back into place without requiring me to wind the hose back into place.
