Well, I couldn’t make a Little K garden with out letting Middle K make one too. We went with the “rock”et theme for him. And he couldn’t be more thrilled. Six is such a wonderful age. He really “got” it and was a big helper. We went, (just he and I) and picked out some rocks, and a couple plants (I’m still skeptical on planting…I know Mother Nature is laughing at me and is gonna send more cold weather). He really enjoyed the one on one time and so did I. He helped spread the rocks and dig the holes for the plants. I let him decide where things would go and I think he did a great job. We’ll wait a few more weeks and get some more plants for both the interactive kid gardens. We also want to find some interesting rocks to add as well.
So, I give you….The “Rock”et Garden:
Those teeny blotches in the back are Juniper plants and something called a blood leaf (I just liked that it had color and the boy liked that it didn’t have flowers). Daddy cut out the wooden rockets and the kids sanded and did the base coat. I did the finishing touches to the rockets (don’t laugh, painting is not my thing).
Next up for the back yard clean up…..camouflaging that ugly a/c unit that is in all the garden pictures.
