We planted our garden

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:
