Ella has been asking about planting a garden for months. We had started some flowers from seed a couple of weeks ago but I told her we had to wait until after daddy’s birthday to plant them outside. Sure enough Jeremy’s birthday passed and she started asking when we were going to plant them outside. After debating where we would put them in the yard we decided maybe something on the deck would be best so that Ella could go out and water them on her own. She can’t open the gate by herself yet to get in the backyard. So daddy built a deck box this weekend and this morning Ella, Abby and I planted the flowers. We had the seedlings that we had started, a few flowers that Grammie and Grandpa Frick had given her and some seeds that she had picked out at the store. It was an interesting planting experience. 😉 Ella was so excited she just kept trying to plant stuff and I was trying to supervise the plant placement and keep Abby from digging stuff up. We’ll have to see what we end up with when everything blooms.
