In the Garden

Due to the three little ones ages 6 and under in my home- gardening is not at the top of my list anymore. I use to spend hours at a time outside- digging, clipping, smelling….. I know those days will come back. I still spend many hours pouring over Garden Magazines while nursing the little one or while the toddler is watching Blues Clues- dreaming of the time I will get to dig again. Now my yard is not a TOTAL hot mess- I do try and at least plant some annuals every spring. And with all the fun garage sales and my endless supply of spray paint- I do have some fun yard ornaments.

Head on over the Kimba’s ASPTL for other Garden fun!!

    You do have lots of fun yard treasures! Love that flag – where did you get it? I’ll look through your archives to see if you’ve posted about it. Love those huge ferns behind the birdbath!

    I’m thinking that three 6-and-unders count for 6 kids!!

    Very pretty garden…love the ferns. Your flag is fantastic. Mind sharing where you got it? Or did you make it yourself? I may have to copy!!

    Amanda, Thanks! I found the other post where you had the flag and read someone’s comment about Sam Moon but they only have jewelry online. I did find a similar flag on ebay and ordered it.

    Search monogrammed flag- there are two sizes available.

    Your yard is pretty. I love the bed with the rosemary and the fern bed too. I do know what you mean about having time to get in the yard. I didn’t for years, but now that mine are 9 and 12, I am getting out more and more—and it is so much fun.
