That's what this week has been like, spring-like weather but still a chill in the air unless you are standing in the small patches of sun. I've been babysitting the flats of seedlings on the top deck that GRANDson Gavin and I planted two weeks ago. We transferred the marigolds, zinnias, beans and squash to little styrofoam cups last weekend and they are doing nicely. Our nights are still coolish so I cover them by draping a flannel sheet over the table, kind of like tucking in a child each night!
I think the project will not only yield plants for the garden... Gavin is actually enjoying the whole process! His big city ways are melting away from him slowly. Life is slower here, and we make time for doing nothing. He tells me often he likes just "hanging with you and Papa!" Isn't that the nicest compliment you could ever get from a 10 year old?
