There are 2 definite things about me. One: I do not have a green thumb. And Two: I am not the craftiest person in the world. But I do give it a try every once in a while.
For our secular Easter craft/decoration this year, we kept it simple and did an easter egg tree. Last year we had a bit of a problem with Landon eating the dye tablets from the egg dying kits!! And then after we dyed them, I kept finding them all over the house! Needless to say, I haven't decided if I want to do them again this year. BUT, the egg tree has got to be the cheapest decoration you can do. And the kids have fun too. It actually kept them busy (and outside) for a while. Lillian kept pulling them down, of course!
Now onto my black thumb. I wanted to plant flowers around the mail box. Keeping it simple...since the rest of our yard isn't professionally landscaped. But I though a little color at the end of the driveway would be nice. Lovey helped me since she's a pro at know what to plant and where/when.
I just hope I don't kill them. I have to remember to water them - sadly that's the hardest part for me. But I'm hoping some April showers can help me out with that!
They loved sprinkling in the osmecote in (a.k.a. plant food).
Maybe my green thumb will turn around after all. But I'm not too sure. I think it runs in the family. Because my sweet cousin has a hard time keeping plants alive too! :-) Rachel...I'm right there with ya!!
