On Monday, Drama queen headed off on her summer adventure. She was excited and impatient for it, until the morning of. And then she was in tears. And Sunshine was beyond hysterical - wailing and sobbing and screaming "MINE! MY Mah-yah!"But she climbed in the car with her cousins and put on a brave face. These are the last pictures you'll see of her until the end of July unless my sister takes some of her and sends them to me....
Today I decided to make use of the large expanse of dirt that normally spends this time of year growing tomatoes and squash...and turn it into a fairy meadow<--click that to go to the seed packet info page.
First we broke up most of the dirt clods and smoothed out the area. Then Mischief watered it down.
Then we scattered seeds all over.
Only trouble with planting flowers this way is that I can't weed....cause I dont' know what is going to be a weed and what is going to be a flower we planted....so I'll pull the 4 weeds I can recognize from constant pulling, at least as much as I can without having to go in the garden... I'll update on this experiment in 5 to 10 days as that's the time frame it is supposed to take for these seeds to sprout.
