Two Little Gardens.
Now for those of you who think I'm a pro gardener, because I talk about it so much, you should know it's not true. I've only had one garden in my grown-up life. Last summer, we were building a house and packing up. This summer we plan to do some again, but I'm still totally learning. And we already missed the cool weather plants, so we'll only have tomatoes, cucumbers, zuchhini, maybe okra. Maybe a few others...not sure yet. We aren't planting grass until the fall, so our little herb garden was planted right up next to our patio. Nate and I did this last night. Mostly Nate. So for those of you who think I know what I'm doing...it's hard to see, but the upper left herb (dill) is pretty much laying flat on the ground. I really have no clue how to plant these things. But I sure hope they grow, because I'm excited about using them! We'll see what happens.
And the second little "garden" is Josie's Butterfly Garden that she received for her birthday. Just out of pure luck, or providence, her caterpillars came in the mail the exact day of her birthday party. We've been watching them grow for over a week, then all of a sudden about 2 days ago, they started attaching themselves to the top of the cup they came in and formed their chrysalises (chrysali??). We put them in their little net and we're waiting, waiting for the first butterfly to make its appearance.
