My grown-up treasures from our nature hikes 🌸
The kids are really good at finding treasures on nature hikes like frogs and shells and rocks… but sometimes they find something that really appeals to the grown-up, penny-pincher, go-green-and-reuse-everything side of me!
And the kids managed to do it two times!!
Twice, now, during our wild hikes into the more heavily wooded areas of parks, we have found abandoned flower pots!
The kids were just as excited about finding them as I was!
(although I wish someone hadn’t used a park as their personal dump site)
Today after days and days of illness… we are finally on the mend 😃 and ready to go move and groove! (Thank you all for the well wishes!!)
Since I feel that we should avoid other people for risk of passing this horrible illness onto another family, we are staying home and just playing lazily outside today and doing light yard work.
Since it’s almost spring and fairly warm outside… I got bit by the gardening bug!!
I got out a few seed packets and put those new-to-us pots to work!
***********A slight rant about store bought seeds!**********
In a perfect world I would have saved seeds from last year… But I am not even close to being perfect, although by some standards my garden was a perfect failure 😳 LOL!
Anyway- I opened my sweet peppers seed packet…
