Flowers and Toddlers...

It's been forever yet again... but here I am!
Things are pretty much crazy right now... So in my need for something tangible and pretty I went and bought myself a bouquet of flowers from Trader Joe's - I love their flowers!
Waxflower & Eucalyptus

Then I also decided to redo my flower pot garden that had completely died and was looking rather depressing (no photos, sorry - it was just too pathetic!). It look much better now... what do you think?

I'm not crazy about Marigolds but they keep the bugs away and that was the issue with the last batch. So there they are in my new garden.

This time around I have Basil, Thyme, Sage, Oregano, with Marigolds in one long pot. And Marigolds, Flame something-or-others, Tiny white flowers, and a Strawberry plant in the other long pot. English Buttercups ( I think...) with the Tiny white flowers in the big round pot... (My favorite).

I also planted peas in a little pot... I'll show pictures once they start coming up...

It's been an interesting day with the little guy I nanny... A note to all you parents: Hang in there. I know being consistent is hard... Really hard some days. But it's so worth it. Today was one of those days... Oh, and don't forget to breathe! This morning was full of testiness and fits and lots of tears and consequences (and hugs!)... but because we dealt with it all as it came, after nap things went so much better. And here's to hoping that tomorrow is better than today!
Time to go get ready for an evening of pizza and a movie with special friends and then a workout at the gym!
