Spring Garden Plans

My conversation with the kids in the car yesterday discussing our springtime plan for planting seeds.:

Me:  What do you guys want to try and grow this year?
David:  Blueberries, strawberries and definitely bananas.
Joey:  Pickles, I grow pickles.


They just crack me up.  I can just see it, our crazy house with the banana tree outside and a pickle garden!  Little David has always loved planting seeds.  One time he buried bubblegum because he wanted a bubblegum tree.  He planned grass seeds in his sandbox and believe it or not, it really worked.  We couldn't get it to grow on our front lawn but somehow in his blue Crayola sand, grass grew.


I am excited for springtime not only for the warm weather, but for the tulips and daffodils to come up, that boys and I planted this past fall.  We also have gladiolas too.  I would really like to get some flowering trees this year, I am thinking Rose of Sharon Hibiscus trees.
