My family and I are off to the local nursery, to pick up an inexpensive flat of flowers. We have two window boxes that rest on the banister outside our sun-room. My son will get to pick the flowers for one box, my daughter will pick flowers for the other. I have some potting soil leftover from last spring and we’ll use it to fill in any spaces not occupied by the roots of the flowers. Throughout the Spring and the Summer, the kids can water the flowers and remove the weeds from the window boxes.
With baby number three on the way, it’s important that we spend quality time with the older kids. It would be fun to start some flowers ‘from seeds’ – maybe we’ll try that next year, when my wife is NOT expecting! 🙂
