My Garden 2012

Spring Break seems to be the perfect time for spring planting. I always enjoy adding little bursts of color to my balcony - Brodie and I love spending time out there this time of year, before it gets unbearably hot. This year I was happy to find my favorite lemon zest petunias again this year, and paired them with a pretty red geranium and some snow princess filler. I did another pot of lemon symphony daisies. (Are you sensing a trend in my color choices?) 

 I'm still hoping the bluebonnets that I planted last year in the blue bucket will come back this year. There's a chance - today I saw a tiny green sprout! I'll keep it watered and see what happens. Otherwise, I guess I'll just have a bucket of dirt for a little while. 
 Oh, and I hung my hummingbird feeder as well - we'll see if I get any tiny visitors. That would be so fun!

Brodie's New Froggie

For a long time I've been wanting to get Brodie a pillow pal. But, spoiled as he may be, I was not willing to spend $20 for something he may not even like (he loves to lounge on pillows, but one with a head? who knows!). Well, in Walmart the other night I found this large stuffed frog in the Easter section, much cheaper than a pillow pal but close enough for Brodie. Well, I think he likes him! The funniest thing is to watch Brodie carry him around or wrestle with it. What a hoot!
