Life With Wee People: Pot Gardens

Turns out my kids are into gardening and enjoy being able to nibble on the organics as we go along. We already know where we want to put the patio and deck so we're fooling around expanding our pot garden one plant at a time. In January those grape vines were just a bunch of dry twigs. Stephen, the Minion Blur has been watering them religiously (and drowned the raspberry and blackberry vines - LOL). The Strawberries are coming up lovely. So are the Serrano peppers and celery. We've a bunch of stuff growing so I guess I'll save that bit of info for another post.

I think the thing I love the most is how much the birds and butterflies have been hanging around. My kids are thrilled to watch their antics and I find that painting outside is very relaxing when they're chilling checking out the wild life. I just discovered that when birds fly south for the winter they take over Florida yards (LOL). The kids put a bowl out to accommodate them and we get tiny visitors all the time.

Noah and Stephen love the Blue Jays. I kind of get a kick out of them as well. I'm thinking a few bird sketches would be nice. They certainly pose enough for me to start banging them out (silly grin). If all goes well with the shorties (and they don't steal all the art supplies) I'm going to be hanging out in the pot garden creating some cool Kim Harrison art with Noah the Net Geek.

Seems we're having a spirited debate about the next Kim Harrison cartoon. Tonight we're spoofing on Dead Witch Walking. Stephen wanted Ivy off the bike but now Noah wants Ivy on the bike. Translated: more drawings (LOL). Turns out they both want me to re-draw the Burning Bunnies shield and make the first illustration larger so I'm on the floor with a 16x20 canvas pad about to "fix" my 12x16 illustrations (head thunks on table - melodramatic eye roll - silly grin), then it's off to the pot garden to sketch and watch the sun go down on my backyard and maybe feed the birds (happy sigh). After, the shorties and I are going to make some noise (evil grin). I am recording a new track. We're doing monster drums tonight (LOL). ;-)

I'm in Facebook cracking wise with the mad jokes being tossed my way (silly grin). Had no idea a quiet moment would be so provocative. Oh well... my bad (LOL). ;-)
