New Growth

Most of you know that I love spring.  In fact, most people who don't have severe allergic reactions love spring.  My favorite part about it as seeing all the new growth that sprouts as soon as the weather is safe enough for new plants to break through the soil.

We've had some new spring moments lately, so I thought I'd share them...

This was Ella's first time ever playing on the deck.  She LOVES it.




















Apparently, she also aspires to be a gardener, because she really enjoys playing in the dirt...
 



















While she was re-potting the bay laurel for me, I was inside getting our parsley and oregano plants into their tray for the summer harvest...















After finishing our home gardening chores, we took a trip to the botanic garden to see what was sprouting over there.  They had some lovely crocuses!




















 Ella got down for a closer look...





















...and a snuggle...




















 Then she decided to show off and walk over to daddy, all by herself!
















 He was so proud!















 
 Then she went exploring in the herb garden...















I love my little girl.

Spring is wonderful indeed especially when you see it through the eyes of Ella who is experiencing it for the first time (last year doesn't count since she was a newborn and she couldn't interact with it). Looks like you've got another gardener in the family!
