grandson celebrating birthday

 Oh, how they grow... grandchildren that is and garden plants, too. One of my grandson's turned five and Ryan was so pleased to have his very own sleeping bag, to celebrate many indoor/outdoor adventures to come! His favorite color is green. Linking to Color Connection

Spring has arrived in SoCal and our garden soil is all prepared and ready for planting. So far we've purchased lots of seeds and a few starter plants like Basil and Parsley. Will you be growing a vegetable garden this year? I wanted to share this comprehensive article with you for vegetable gardening. Very informative!

Easter baskets and decorations

I've filled 5 Easter baskets for the grandchildren and I'm really excited for the weekend festivities. They'll have bubbles and silly string, jewelry and books. Of course, I'll add pretzels and crackers, maybe a little candy, too! Do you have a favorite Easter tradition? One of my favorite bloggers, +Bernadette Ortiz-Grbic has tons of great ideas for all those accumulated eggs. You'll want to see her post on 10 Ways to Use Plastic Eggs

clivias in my yard

In addition to the vegetable garden, we have a few flower gardens along the way. Our Clivias seem to do well in the shade around the north side of the house. Linking up with Orange You Glad It's Friday

Wishing you and your family a wonderful Easter filled with happy memories!
