some mysteries are solved

while hiding eggs for the kids I saw some of these. good think I didnt pull up that "grassy
 stuff. it was these handsome little grape hyacinths. I have an area with one or two and then an area with a clump of them. so so cute. I will have to separate and put them where I want.

and I saw some of these getting ready to bloom......
I think it is time for me to get this bed ready and weeded.
I will work around what is there and mulch it.
wonder what other surprises are in that pile of dirt?

coming at ya baby

Hope everyone had a happy Easter. this is a pic of my youngest grandson.
he and his brother had an egg hunt at my house. they had lots of fun.
later on in the day we thought my niece would be over with her little one so the boys decided to rehide the eggs for the little one. 

we waited............

we took a walk..............

we waited....................

we took another walk..............

nobody was coming. 

so I asked the boys to help me find the eggs before they went home.

they were picking them up very fast and the older one started making a game out of throwing them into my bag as he found them.
well, not to be outdone, the little one started to also.
he picked up an egg, looked straight at me, and said 
"coming at ya baby"

well, his parents and I cracked up........

out of the mouths of babes.............
we had a fabulous Easter day!
Hope you did too!
