Planting Pansies

Hi Guys how are you?!

Is Spring here yet? I think it must be visiting soon! The reason I think it must be almost here is because my Grammy and my Grampa-Will came over to help start a garden at our new house and I got to help!

I love it when it’s warm and bright and colorful outside. My mom used to have a lot of flowers at our old house and I heard her say she really wanted to have some here too. She said she and dad are going to plant food plants, too. I like food a lot, so that’s exciting! I wonder if mom will mind if I test the food when it grows big enough?

 My mom and grammy went to a flower store called a nursery. I guess there wasn’t room in the car or something because I didn’t get to go with them for that part. I cheered up when they got home, though because I did get to spend lots and lots of time outside helping them put all the flowers in different kinds of pots and even right in the ground!

It’s still cold here, so most flowers can’t be planted outside yet. Mom says Pansies are named wrong because people think pansies are weak but they’re really very strong. They don’t even mind the cold like some flowers do.

I think it’s kind of funny that my mom and grammy wear gloves on their hands when they dig in the dirt. I dig best without any gloves on.

It’ll be warm enough to plant all kinds of flowers soon but I love the pansies enough to take me through all of spring if they have to!

Thanks for visiting and have a great week!
