Planting this Spring

I love Spring.
 It is my favorite season.
I think the main reason is for the warmer days and the growth that comes.
I love to plant.
Flowers, garden, anything.
We have also been planting at school. Here I am with some of my students planting in the school's vegetable raised boxes. The kids had a great time and learned a lot.
I will not show any pictures with faces plainly seen.
The kids enjoyed themselves.

We have been talking about spring and planting in our class this Spring. It has been a fun unit.
I have also been busy planting at home.
A few of my scrubs didn't make it over the years because of sun/shade issues so I replanted the tall evergreen on the far right side. They are not cheap, but I had been saving for it. It took two people just to lift it into the hole.
Thankfully, I was able to do most of the planting myself and mulching. I had the boys drag the bags of mulch from the van to the flower beds. They are such serving children. They love to serve their momma and remind me I shouldn't do things because of the baby in my belly.
I am itching to get ferns, but it wasn't in the budget this month. Maybe in May.

Our grass is getting so green and growing very well this year. This is the first year in five years that we haven't had to sew any grass seed.
I love making our house a HOME.
