Palms, first carrot harvest, and some cute kids!!!

I am so busy, I am having to consolidate pics into one post. We took Emily to a different park the other day and I realized how darn "FLORIDA" is looked! I had to take a pic of these beautiful palms surrounding the playground area. Sometimes, you don't see what is around you where you live, but this day was gorgeous, and I seriously felt like I could be in heaven!

Here are the first carrots I thinned out of the 5 gallon buckets! Varying from 1 to 4 inches long, they were most assuredly NOT QUITE READY YET!!! It was good to thin out a bit though, and I plan to do a little each week, and see what difference it will make to the ones that remain in the soil longer. They are awefully cute tho, aren't they? They tasted very good in the salad we made that night!

Here are two cute of Donovan playing soldier (Mr. Handsome), and Emily is laying back on a giant kiwi fruit, and checking out a grapefruit and cherry at an indoor playground at the Wellington Mall. Isn't she beautiful??? The playground is a bunch of waffles, and fruits to climb on. All soft, padded and the flooring is rubber suishy! Seating for the grown ups all around the edge...just lovely!!!

Hope everyone is well...loads of love especially to my Australian blogging friends who have been dealing with rain and flooding.
xoxo- Julie

Emily on the kiwi is darling! She is a little beauty and Donavan is a handsome little man!

Those little carrots are too cute. I was just telling a friend last night about your carrots. Something else to try!

I love palms...always make me think of a tropical island. Awwwww, and such cute pix of the grandkids!

YAY for home-grown carrots!! I tried growing them once but they turned out like mutants...I needed softer soil ~ :)

Lynn said...

Yes, of course your babies are beautiful!!!! Sweet in teh little dress. Not sure I am fond of the dagger Donavon is wearing on his cap! LOL
Your carrots are adorable too. I bet they were delicious!
