A Bit of Earth

Have you seen the yard behind Chris's house?  It's HUGE!  Last year Chris had sprinklers installed and planted grass.  But, more importantly, she gave me a 'little' corner for a flower garden.  Little? It's 9' by 20' :).

Mom helped me, and we placed some stepping stones as well as planted daisies, phlox, poppies, peonies, and petunias :).  We've been joking about all the "pea" flowers: "pea never looked so good." "A lot of pea helps gardens grow."  he he he!  You get the idea!

It was a lot of work, but tons of fun!! Thanks Mom :)


  1. All those flowers are so pretty! Nice job girls!

  2. You're right - adding a little pea to the garden does wonders! A bit of earth is such a nice thing to have stewardship over. There is a lot of satisfaction in planting something and watching it grow... or freeze to death, as is the case this weekend. Grrrrrr.....Burrrrrr....Grrrrrrr.
