April Showers.....May Flowers?

We sure are starting off spring with lots of showers. We are having a great time watching spring wake up from it's long winter nap. The girls have started new nature journals. There is so much to choose from right now! I've just finished reading Pocketful of Pinecones by Karen Andreola. It's a wonderful book and I highly recommend it to instill a love of nature study!The House Cat's entry on the Dogwood Tree

Our Flower Adventure:
First, we planted seeds.

Impatiens for Honeybee

Forget Me Not for Snuggle Bug

And Snapdragon for Buck.

Of course, they needed sunlight. Since we don't have a window sill or any other place to put them .... Mom got inventive.

Things were going great until a Downy Woodpecker came to the suet feeder in the Mary Garden
:) or :( I wonder?

The next picture tells the outcome. I would have made a picture of the mess but, of course it happened about 10 minutes before we had to leave for art class.

This is what we are left with.
Will we have May flowers?
