We planted our garden

Spread the love

Well we have been waiting for the April Showers to let up and the ground to dry just enough so we could plant.  Friday was a beautiful day. So we headed out to our local mom and pop nursery – Sweetbrier Nursery on 10th ave in Caldwell. Their plants are always so healthy ( and no I am not paid in anyway for my opinion – we just really like them). They are only open for a few short months in the spring.

Well we had so much fun picking and choosing what we thought would make a fun garden! Little Maveric comedered the cart:
