A little bit of sunshine!

Well today started like every other day this week. We got out of bed and it was "STILL" raining! The boys were not too keen to get started on their maths, and who could blame them. We have not been out for our usual daily walk or bike ride for four days! Good Heavens, its so hard being a little boy, don't you think?

So we did English instead, and then as we were all a bit fed up we thought, forget it, lets go for a drive. So we all hopped in the car and headed for the country side (you know a whole five minutes inland from our place). It was nice viewing and it stopped raining, so we called into a garden centre to buy some sugar cane mulch for the garden. I also could not help myself and bought some more plants! Oops!

Then we stopped at yet another garden centre on the way home and bought a few more plants! Needless to say, a lot of gardening went on and not much school work. Oh well, we will catch up tomorrow. The garden is going to be so full in a few weeks. It will probably look more like a jungle. I have more than filled up the new garden and there is no where left to plant anything. Hmmm that front garden better watch out. Im finding that more and more I want to get rid of the useless ornamental type plants and replace them with herbs or vegetables. Every time I look at a piece of grass, Im thinking. I could dig that up and put in some more dirt there. I really do think we need to move to a farm. LOL.

Cameragirl has informed me that her friend is coming over to stay the night. And the house is looking a bit like a bombs hit it at the moment. So I guess I should stop blogging and go sort it out. Hey Alta, where is my poem? I hope its a good one.

Karisma, your post somehow reminded me to the joy of gardening in the spring ^_^

A garden is like an open biology book for our little ones. Natures has so much to teach about biology (and perhaps zoology too!)

Wish you a pleasant weekend! ^_^

Sounds like a relaxing day in the country...which is just what I love! I used to do the same thing with my boys when they were younger. If math didn't work, we'd switch gears - the joy of flexibility!

Yes, we spend a lot of time in the garden these days. Although the boys much prefer to go and play in the mud than learn in the garden!

Your little ride and your garden sound lovely. I know what you mean about pulling up grass to grow things to eat.
