Where did spring go? That seems to be the question on all of our minds. I think we are in the season of mud right now. It is everywhere! The boys took Lauren out to play this afternoon. I picked out a pair of jeans that aren't my favorites for her to wear. It was a good thing because I'm pretty sure she came back in with at least 1/2 a pound of mud on her back side!
I am looking forward to starting my vegetable garden. Usually by mid-April I can plant lettuce, radishes, spinach and peas. I'm not sure it will be that soon this year. The ground is still pretty saturated and it is still quite cold here.
I spent about an hour Saturday planting assorted flower, pepper, and tomato seeds into starting trays. I am trying some new flowers this year, English Daisy, Foxglove and Cardinal Climber. I am anxious to see if they will grow well for me.
Isaac has been my helper in getting the seeds started. Each morning Isaac and I gaze closely at the trays to see if we have any new seedlings. He usually spots them before I do. It brings us such enjoyment to see the amazing process of growing plants. We always wonder how anyone can say there isn't a God. All you have to do is take a close look at the intricate details in a flower to know we serve an amazing God. Last week I was trying to thin out some Bachelor Button seedlings. Isaac just couldn't see throwing them away. So together we planted then into a starter tray so that he can put them in his flower garden this spring. It has been wonderful to be able to share this common interest with him. I believe he has grand ideas for his portion of the flower garden, just as I do!
