Planting Season but where is Spring?

Easter weekend we were so spoiled 80+ degrees. Since then its been down right nasty. Cold and rainy. However things are starting to bloom...i guess April showers do bring May flowers.

I took this photo from the front porch, when we built the house the bigger honeysuckle bush was about the size of the smaller one. The smaller one was only a stick and 3 feet tall.

Here is a shot from one day that we were outside.In gardening news, we are expanding! We added two more raised beds.
Which is good because we are planting!

Emma tried to help!
My craft area is currently home to the seedlings! We planted 3 kinds of tomatotes, broccoli, cauliflower, flowers, brussel sprouts, some herbs and Peppers. With the peppers i learned a big lesson. That I am not inpatient, I am illiterate! I was waiting for my 10 day germination peppers to spout. On the 11th day when nothing had happened I read the package and it said...10-21 days! oops about 13 days they came up!

In home news!! Tyler dressed himself one moring:
So you know the shirt is on inside out and backwards. And here Emma is seeking revenge and attacking her sleeping older brother!Have a great week
