It finally rained this weekend; a good heavy rain. This has been such a dry spring, and the rain was so needed. Everything feels especially green and vibrant now. The peonies are simply breathtaking this year (of course I say that every year). I know the exact yards where, year after year, I stalk my favorite peony bushes. I was excited to add a few new finds to my list this year. I’ve been teaching the boys the names of all of my favorite flowers, and I am surprised by the fact that they have started to recognize them all on their own. Their little minds are like steel traps, I swear. I’m wondering if you have any recommendations for flower/ garden books that the boys might enjoy. We read our fair share about growing veggies and fruits, and about where our food comes from, but I think they would really enjoy some books about flowers and general gardening.
