In the Garden

Here is Klaus. He supervises our gardening activities.

Klaus, ready for gardening season!

The girls love Klaus. Here of course Bella is posing, but I also sometimes catch the girls just giving him a surprise hug once in a while.


Our loot from Linder's.

Ready to plant!

I only meant to get a few things. But you know how that place is. They had pretty hanging baskets, but then I saw the price tag, "$40?! I can make that for $40!!" and then I spend 2 hours picking out $60 worth of plants. So take that.

Here's my iris. So beautiful but lasts about 10 minutes with all the rain.


Columbine. This one is only a couple years old and I've never seen so many flowers on it.


Our peaches and cream peony. Looks mostly like cream, but oh well at least it made flowers this year!


The girls and I planted a potted fairy garden for the porch.

They had a lot of fun deciding where to put each tiny plant, and then adding all the accessories.

Fairy Garden all done

See I told you, sneaking a hug.


It turned out so sweet! I just know the fairies will stop by.

How can they resist hazelnut boy in the pumpkin patch?

Or the little hazelnut woman next to the MOSS lawn.

If you look carefully, you can see a mother bird sitting on her nest with two eggs.

Bird in a nest

Oh look! A fairy did stop by! She left a little rock, a note, and lots of fairy dust. It was very exciting when Bella spotted it this morning!

A present from a fairy!

  1. Hi Amy! I was searching online for a Sesame Street Ball Pit and I was brought to your Blog from your Christmas Card in 2009. I have been searching all over for this exact one for my son's 1st Birthday Party and can't seem to find one anywhere. I was wondering if you still had yours and if you did if you would be interested in selling it?!? You can contact me at my email: ahersey_RN@hotmail.com
