Rainy Day Shoes

Spring is just around the corner, and we are getting particularly excited about gardening. I have all sorts of plans for the yard, including growing a serious number of moonflowers and morning glories, which I hope will grow quickly and vine and flower all over the fence surrounding the back yard.

The moonflowers are a new thing, not planted in our original garden. I am going to borrow an idea from Cottage Living (a super-cute magazine that J’s mom got me for Christmas) and plant some of these on the front porch like so:
Most of the things in the garden seem to be growing okay, but there are a few, for example, the poppies, that grew and then toppled over and died. Any thoughts on why? My current theory is that the basement may have gotten too cold at one point and killed them. Jason suggested that they grew too tall for their root system. Either way, I’m attempting to grow more.

One of my weekend projects was making a window garden for the two windows on either side of the fireplace. I have to admit that I copied this idea from a magazine, too. I think it’s a fun and cheap way to bring some spring cheer to the house, and once the seeds grow big enough, I’ll probably plant the flowers in the yard once they get big enough. So really, it’s a double whammy.

With spring, we’re anticipating a lot of rain. We’re hoping that it won’t come in the basement. Also, we’re trying to figure out why one of J’s shoes always gets wetter than the other.

    Finally figured out how to navigate the blog and found some of your earlier entries. Funny stuff….btw dad knows why one of Jason’s shoes gets wetter than the other! I have another opinion…the debate continues until Breck where a final verdict will be made. JT, bring the shoes!
