Planting fall

Since our little lady began using her feet to walk on a few months ago – life has become SO much easier!  Little tasks that would have had to be done during nap time or when Donald was home can get done now – and are much more fun too!  Our example of this: planting our fall flowers/plants.  Double the fun when done with little lady.

Prepping for our work:


The front plants are bulbs that come up in the fall – they’re amazing.  The lady who lived here about thirty years ago planted them – that is an entirely different post though.  When they come up, they evoke a smile.


Told you she was my little helper!



So this little plant/root is something I’m trying to keep alive from my mom’s garden – haha, abi decided that it didn’t need all of its CO2 grabbing leaves.


Gardening is not for the faint of heart!

She really wants to replicate what I’m doing, so abi found this empty bucket to drag around as I was filling my pots with dirt!  Baby even used the spade to dump in some dirt.


Abi was also very distressed when I wasn’t wearing my gloves – if I took them off (to get her picture) she would grab them and say “Mama??”  And wouldn’t relent until they were on my hands again!


Precious and joyful memories!
