The Big Guy was reading my blog the other day and he casually stated "For a greenhouse blog, you sure haven't posted much about the plants lately!".
Can you BELIEVE it?! Suddenly I'm living with a writing critic who thinks my posts do not contain sufficient coverage of the greenhouse going's on. I'm going to have to have a talk with that boy.
after a little scrolling through my recent posts, I did have to agree that I haven't really given much coverage to the FALL MUM crop that has begun to ship to your local BIG BOX store over the last 2 weeks.
It would really be a shame if I didn't share a few pictures of our outdoor production acreage now that it's coming in to BLOOM!
They just look like acres and acres of CHIA PETS waiting to find a good home, don't you think?
OK, enough of that! Now on to my favorite subject.....
THE WEE ONE!
Ya'll knew that was coming didn't you?
This week is full of music and rehearsing since we're going to Holland soon with the whole family. Everyone is getting organized for the big JANSEN 5 CD release at the end of August.
The Wee One has become quite fascinated with the METRONOME which the kids are using to keep time. You see, it's the kind of metronome that TALKS.
"One and Two and Three and Four"
Not only does this metronome talk but it has lots of BUTTONS and LEVERS that move up, down and all around, changing tempo and volume with ease.
I just hope she doesn't figure out which one is the power button or I may have to remove the batteries.
A few nights ago I came home after photocopying more music and concert information about the tour, making sure that everyone knows what songs they need to practice and what time different events will happen. I walked into the living room to see the cutest sight I have EVER SEEN.
The Wee One was "playing along" with the rehearsal. Of course, being just 2 years old, she was quickly distracted by the Big Guy who was trying to catch the whole thing on his blackberry. The moment she realized he was directing the camera at her she happily obliged with some very big "CHEESE" smiles to ensure he got her best look on film.
Is it any wonder that with all this cuteness going on around here that I tend to neglect my greenhouse posts lately? I mean, wouldn't you?
Now, I figured that I should make sure my blogger peeps don't forget to stop on by Tootsie's place for Fertilizer Friday where they can see some more amazing gardens and a myriad of flowers. You will have tons of fun checking out what other places look like after this weird and wacky summer we've all experienced this year!
