Sweet Peas-Green Hour Challenge #15
My daughter helped me out this week by drawing sweet peas in her nature journal. She used colored pencils to make this beautiful drawing.
We also spent some time planting more seeds in the garden this week. We are using a fantastic idea I found on Cocoa's blog for challenge number 12. If you go over to her blog, make sure to scroll down towards the bottom of the entry to see their flower garden project.
We prepared a small flower bed next to our morning glories, put some potting soil in the wheelbarrow, opened the packets of seeds and sprinkled them. We mixed up the seeds and the soil and then took handfuls and spread them on top of our new garden bed.
Here is the flower bed all seeded and ready for some water and sunshine.
We are hoping that we get a sort of wild looking mix of flowers here over the summer.
Here is a beautiful bloomer we have in a pot on the back deck. I just love the bold colors of this flower.
We are getting quite a collection of garden flower drawings in our nature notebooks. So much color and variety are found right in our own backyard.
Have a great week,
