Donovan art and summer gardens...
Donovan and I decided to create houses yesterday from construction paper, and added stuff as we saw fit. Here he is with his house. He is looking kinda tired in this photo. (The other things he did yesterday were PLAYED BALL, HIT THE TETHERBALL WITH HIS DAD, RAN AROUND OUTSIDE, JUMPED ON A BIG MATTRESS EXPECIALLY FOR THAT, DANCED AND JUMPED WHILE PLAYING WIII, AND MORE! No wonder he looks so worn out here...he wore me out!!!
I'm glad he also likes to sit sometimes (rare), and a little more quietly, do art. He loves to cut and paste...just like Grandma Julie!!!
Getting ready for summer in the front garden. Here is my cactus that started from one pad from a tree cut down a year or so ago in my neighborhood...it is really growing now that our watering restrictions have gone from 2 up to 3 days a week that we CAN water now. Yeah. Things are looking so much happier!!!
I finally pulled out all my dead old collards from the tires they were in, and now I have dirt ready for flowers. Nothing can take the summer heat but Vincas, so I am thinking of just filling them with these until October, when the heat fades and I can change to some lovely flowers...all different kinds...OR maybe just a lot of mixed seeds...and have a cutting garden! That would be so fun! You know how I like my fun!!! LOL.
