It's not surprising we have so many weeds, when we've added almost 4 tons of manure to the garden.
So today we learnt how to love the dandelions. Again we spent two hours in the garden, but first we made dandelion crowns...
Very bridge to Terabithia!
And then the kids had some fun game involving the dandelion queen.
Rosie flower arranging with dandelions!
We had to feed a few dandelions to the chickens!
|All kids happy, I got to PLANT some bulbs, no weeding, actual planting. I also planted some Strawberry seeds too.|
Jemima has learnt how to do wild spinning on the rope swing.
Not playtime for everyone, Geoff sorted out the compost heaps.
and more compost heaps
It was so nice to potter around by myself, to hear the chickens and other birds and the horses in the next field.
Yesterday I'd not noticed these blue flowers(Irises?)
Time to watch and enjoy the garden.
Quality time with my girls too!
So thankyou to the two comments on my previous post, today we've learnt to love dandelions!
But maybe when I'm older and the kids have grown up, I'll have a weed free garden. That is, unless I'm home educated the grand children!
