Containers of Flowers

"If you love a flower that lives on a star,
it is sweet to look at the sky at night.
All the stars are a-bloom with flowers..."
~ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

Working on a container garden of zinnias + marigolds, planting strawberries + jalapenos, checking the upside down tomatoes, starting alyssum + marigold seeds. The girls are happy to help with anything that involves water and getting things themselves wet. My younger daughter discovered that she could make "music" by spraying water into different sized pots so she made a water symphony. After a day of planting in the upper 90's, a quick jump in the pool followed by... a race out of the pool when we heard thunder! A good tired.
