See the daffodils,momma...
We love Spring!! It lifts all of our spirits, and we are so excited to be able to go outside and enjoy the warmer weather. Our yard is beginning to show signs of Spring. We are studying Birds and Flying creatures in science. As part of our study, we have set up a backyard Bird Sanctuary. We love to watch all the birds as they feed at our feeders. We have 6 male and 3 female cardinals that visit regularly. We have lots of yellow and purple finches, doves, blackbirds, 3 woodpeckers, wrens, titmouses, mockingbirds, purple martins, robins, and hummingbirds(although we haven't seen them out yet this year). We have had a few visitor birds including bluebirds, bluejays, and orioles. It is so cool to watch them interact and feed. We are able to watch out our windows, and it is great fun to hear the kids shout out when a new bird is discovered. It is our dream to expand our bird area and make a butterfly garden as well.
So each year we plan to add a few different plants to this area of our yard.
We are making plans for a vegetable garden which the kids will help me plant and cultivate starting after Easter. I love gardening and cooking the fresh vegetables that we are able to harvest. Come on Spring!!
