I love simple, pretty things like these pop bottle vases with fresh cut flowers. We gave a pop bottle vase with fresh flowers to each of my older sons' preschool teachers this Spring. Frugal and Repurposed gifts from the home are the best and you can never go wrong with fresh flowers.
Pretty enough for a wedding too. My parents 1974 wedding featured daisies in coke bottles.
My husband's grandmother planted these bulbs years ago and they still come up year after year. I wish they lasted longer. They are always so beautiful.
My little helper was so cute watering plants yesterday with his cowboy hat on, so I slipped inside and grabbed the camera.
Big brother wanted his picture taken too.
A few weeks ago the boys harvested the potatoes they had planted in the Spring. The boys loved helping and I love that they know from where their food comes. I heard this on the radio one night, children in our local school district kindergarten classes were surveyed and asked from where they thought their food came. You're not going to believe this. The #1 answer was the gas station. We asked our 5 year old who was 4 at the time and I thought he might say the grocery store. I was really glad when he said our food comes from the farm.
I love this picture of our two year old planting with Daddy last April.
Tonight I boiled the rest of the potatoes, added some peas, butter, and salt and we had a delicious dinner.
