For Melvin

My friend Kathy and I went out thrifting and antiquing again today. I found a few things, not quite as many deals as a few weeks ago. Below are photos from that and more of what is coming up in the garden...

Bulb box

Rowan DK Handknit Cotton (retails for $5+ per skein online. I picked up these 5 for $1.48 at Thrift Store City)

Leprechaun trinket box for William

Flower platter

I bought an old cap gun for William today at an antique store. Yes, I AM the kind of mom who allows her children to have fake guns. Guns don't kill people. People kill people. Children must be taught respect of weapons and that cannot happen if they are never exposed to them! (Can you see the look of sheer joy on his face?)

In the garden today, we have...

Something my dad planted with the kids in the fall (crocus??)

Flamewitch Dianthus

The start of nasturtiums from Pia in Norway

The start of cosmos that were planted as seed last week-end

Kids twisting each other on the swingset so they can spin around and around and around
