Spring Finally!

Wow! That was a long winter.  So glad to out today without a coat.
This was our yard on March 6th
And here is yesterday April 14th - what a difference!  This is our first flower of the year, a lonely daffodil.  Hopefully more will follow soon.   My tulips are coming up very full and I can't wait to see all the colors. 
Even though it was super windy out, we attempted to plant some seeds we got at the dollar store.  We were even able to get the potting soil there. Not sure about the quality, but if nothing grows, we at least didn't spend an arm and a leg on our attempts.  The boys love planting stuff though I am pretty sure they probably won't be eating more than the peas or green beans.  I have been on a huge kale kick lately, so I really do want to seriously plant some kale for myself. 
I will have to dig out some gardening scrapbook paper and stickers I have for these photos - it will make a cute layout. 
Our dollar store finds: 

These are pumpkin seeds from our pumpkins last fall.  We washed and dried the seeds and then stored they in a dark place all winter.  It will be interesting to see what happens with these. 
 I think the kids had just as just fun watering the newly planted bulbs in the front garden. 

Taking a minute to stop and smell the daffodil.
