The Magic Tree

I saw this stick-on tree and bought it on a whim when we were getting our bedroom ready for kids, not really sure where I would put it but really loving it. It now is over the changing table/dresser. Mr. Baby has loved it from the first day we brought him home. He stares at it, talks to it, and has started reaching out for it, especially for Piglet. It's a great place to put him when I just need a minute to do something. At least until he starts rolling over...

Spring Planting

A few weeks ago we were able to plant some things in the boxes on our front porch.

Small dahlias in the long boxes.
Last year's rose bush in the pot.
Daisy's inspection.

Daisies for the Daisy: white petals with purple centers.

We also planted green onions, basil, and Kentucky Mint in small pots. We hope to expand our herb garden, but this is a good start. Cousin Aymie found us a small wrought iron patio table at a garage sale last weekend. We are so excited to have it, just have to arrange how to get it here.
