So I'm just digging away in the backyard, planting my impatiens in the big flower pot like I do every year, when SURPRISE! I found a big white egg was already planted! First I assumed it was a turtle egg, since we have several turtles that lay eggs in our yard every year.
And yep, wouldn't you know a couple of days later that flower pot had been dug into again. I didn't check to see if the egg was gone -- I didn't really want to know!
I was so excited to pick the first handful of strawberries from our garden...ever! We planted these last year and whoa, they sure like to spread! We've been getting about 8 to 10 strawberries a day which makes me sooo happy, I wish they were around all summer!
We had a lot of fun visiting a sweet little zoo in Belvedere, IL recently. Check out the animal sign. Don't you just want to take that home with you? It's so perfectly aged. They did have one zebra but I didn't get close enough to take a picture.
He'll let you know exactly where he wants petted. Pretty cool.
Here's the start of it...the pea gravel. This is definitely a work in process so I will have to update more on this later. And I'm sure again later. I've decided to name it phase I, phase II, phase III, etc.
As you can see, my daughter thoroughly enjoyed the rock pile. I don't blame her, I climbed it as well. I just happened to have a shovel in my hand and called it "work".
