Lots a-sproutin' at the Atwood garden

Below are a few pics of our bounteous Spring-time growth.

Some goods will be harvested in the Summer months,
others not until Fall time.

You do the math.

The Cream of the Crop

You know those moments when you think,
" I ever glad I married this guy!"

I have them often, & one just this morning.

Just a public shout-out to the Fella & Little Red for letting me sleep in until

And also thank you for weeding the garden.

This well-rested lady is much appreciative.

I'm not a competitive Easter Egg Hunting Parent. Nope, not me.

Easter Egg Hunt: Take 1: Action:

A million-gazillion people joined us at the E.Egg Hunt at Central Park. The hunt consisted of eager sugar happy parents gathering eggs by the armful while pushing their way through the droves of toddlers. It takes a lot to make me frazzled. This made me frazzled. Out of protection for our daughter's life, we held back from the forces and didn't collect 1 egg. Not a single egg. Grrrr...

Easter Egg Hunt: Take 2: Action:

This hunt went down at a friend's house for a lovely Easter Brunch. It was delicious and fun, as expected. However, the hunt was another story. There was a little toe-head boy, around the age of 6 or 7, following me around and everytime I would point out a "toddler egg" (you know, the one's clearly lying on the ground for tots to add to their loot), he would swoop in and chuck it in his basket! Hello, Little Boy. You can look high and low as far as I'm concerned. The best part was when he looked up at me and said, "Wow! I guess I'm just too quick!" I gave him my biggest "Happy Easter, you little turkey" smile and nodded politely.

Easter Egg Hunt: Take 3: Action:

Success. Both Avy & I collected the necessary amount of eggs to satisfy our hunt craving till next year. Thanks be to all involved with this hunt for following the rules.
