It isn't often that we find something that our little grands haven't already done. They live with the other grandparents and they keep them very busy with zoos, orchards, movies and events. When they were here recently, we took them strawberry picking. They were so excited and while we didn't stay very long, they said it was their favorite thing they did while they were here.
The lack of spring sunshine made the berries
very small and they were few and far between.
Great-grandpa had as much fun as the little guys.
Yesterday, after a day of rain, I took a few pictures of my large tropical planter on the deck. Some of the plants were added this season, but the banana plant and the jasmine we planted in it last year. Imagine our surprise that they are so beautiful this year after spending an Illinois winter in the garage. We were amazed that they came back from the shock of the cold.
