Annual Planting of the Circle Garden!
Every year, my grandsons, Andrew and Nate, pick out flowers for a circle garden in our yard. They are 7 and 9, and we started this tradition several years ago. It's so much fun to go to the garden store, get a double-tiered cart and let them pick out almost whatever they want. This year we have Gerbera daisies and geraniums that match the color of their Little League baseball teams -- red and orange, along with an assortment of pink, hot pink, yellow, purple, lavender, magenta, and cream fabulous flowers. Another big part of the fun is in the planting -- Nate said, "We're doing a better job this year because we're older!" I look forward to this tradition every year, especially in the Winter. I used to match my flowers and balance out colors, but my creative grandsons have helped me burst through my inhibitions with their enthusiasm and happy energy. Now I am much more bold in my flower choices and have a much more interesting yard. Thank you, Nate and Andrew!
