The kids and I have enjoyed watching a momma dove sitting on these 2 eggs nestled on a palm frond on our pool fence the past week or so. I tried to get a photo of the momma but she flew away when I got too close.
When my Mom was here she did a couple of gardening projects with the kids which they have loved. They planted lettuce, zinnias, marigolds and four o'clocks. The lettuce and zinia's sprouted right away. The others are coming although I am not certain if we have a marigold growing or a week. Time will tell. They also planted some marigold plants out front and it is fun to see a touch of color by the front door. So far, we have done a great job of remembering to water them everyday. We are actually thinking we should plant some more lettuce as it will be fun to have a salad with lettuce from our own back yard.
Today we decided to throw together a quick Target Dollar Spot Spring decoration using some of the great things they have right now. I love these larger metal pails (lets just say, I have bought more than a dollar's worth). Simple project, styrofoam in the pail, trimmed the sticks of a couple of the bird houses, pushed in a few of the planter picks and covered with moss. Oh, and the blue Easter M&M was a touch offered up by my daugher. It is a great centerpiece on our table.
