For the Love of Flowers...

I want warm spring weather and I painted a rose bush. :) I painted from a reference picture because I haven't painted with acrylics for a LONG time, and I'm not very good at them. I wasn't going for an exact replica, though it is pretty close.

Spring = Tulips

I cannot wait for spring! These are last years tulips. I dug up these bulbs and some others and, along with some new ones, replanted this flower bed! The chickens, however, got to digging, unearthing, and mixing up the bulbs, so we shall see what grow where!!!

"If you don't have time to pray and read scriptures, you are busier then God ever intended you to be." ~ Unknown

I printed this out on a little note card and stuck it on my mirror. It reminds be to put God FIRST!

One of my favorite school subjects is science. This week, I am learning about how animals/people/plants make energy! I did an experiment on combustion -

Happy March!

March 1st - 2 degrees, -17 wind chill and light snow. I want spring! Today I found a container of bulbs I had dug up this spring while replanting a flowerbed. I have no idea what type of flower it is - I didn't plant this particular bed, and the bulbs in question were too far down to grow. I found a bulb in the container that had sprouted a tiny bit. I planted it today in a pot and am eager to see what this little guy will grow into - it's like many of us - it has the ability to sprout and flourish - but it doesn't know what to grow into! With a little bit of help and nourishment...we can find out.
