Sunday Sidelines

Good morning and happy spring Sunday to all. This weekend has been about flowers at our house. It all started because a friend gave us a very small moon flower. We nurtured it in the house forever - not because we had to - because we were lazy, err slow? Anyway, we wanted to see these large white blooms that we heard about - they only bloom at night, so we decided it was time to send this small plant to the real world. And of course this became a production. Here are some photos - hard to believe these five small pots of flowers took us all morning!

The moon flower is the leafy plant in the back of the square planter. We had to put a mini-arbor type thing in the back of the planter because moon plants like to climb. My favorite at this point is the red and white flower in the flower flowerpot. It is really beautiful to see. Maybe next weekend we will be able to do more.

I hope that you will take the time to read some book reviews of Holocaust Resources for children:
Angel Girl - A controversial story

A Family Secret - A graphic novel

And maybe come by and tell me about your week!

Hey there, just dropping by on the hop and have become a new follower.

Your flowers are beautiful. I can't wait to do our planters, but we had hail here in Toronto yesterday, so I think I will hold off until mid May.

You can visit my blog here if you're interested.

Happy Reading!
