Yesterday morning, my mom and I got up bright and early in the cool, 62 degrees morning to finally plant our plants that had been sitting in those Lowe’s plastic bags for the past two weeks. Thank goodness they didn’t die! We have an assortment of green, red, and orange bell peppers, aloe vera plants, dill, cilantro, basil, lots of pink and purple and orange flowers, strawberries, tomatoes, red hot chile peppers that I picked out myself because nobody else wanted them, and chamomile that I planted from seeds. It was so fun and relaxing. Too bad I didn’t have a tree to plant for Earth Day, but I think I did good enough!

Aloe Vera

Who knew aloe vera plants spread like wildfire?! We started out with one and now we have about 8!

Strawberries

Strawberries

These were planted in a special strawberry pot with holes in the sides of it. But the first time I picked up the pot, full of dirt, by the holes, the top broke off from the bottom! Lesson learned.

Chamomile

You can make your own tea out of this!

A Dill Plant

It’s So Yummy!!!

Huzzah! The fruits of labor have finally been brought down to me from the Heavens!

A couple of weeks ago, I started growing a dill plant straight from the seed! I almost never start from a seed, and when I do, it usually doesn’t work. I’m so excited! I have a bunch of other seeds for different plants that I’m going to start to grow this afternoon. They’re easy things like other spices, microgreens, strawberries, and of course flooooooooowers! Starting a garden really makes it feel like Spring!


This weekend was all about getting ready for the new season. I’ve been working relentlessly over the past 36 hours and I’ve accomplished some pretty big things. I’m cleaning out whole walls and sections of the floor that have been messy for years. Aaaaah. It feels good.

“A cluttered desk is a cluttered mind.”

I agree wholeheartedly.


Over the past week, we have gotten two new pieces of music,

Crystal Moon and

Processional

   I really like Cyrstal Moon because it’s really fast and marching-band sounding. Processional, in case you haven’t heard the name, is the song they play at college or high school graduation. In our case, it will be for 8th grade graduation.

We also have at least three concerts coming up,

Dream Flags Ceremony–Our night performance is April 30th and our daytime one is May 1st. It’s a big deal at my school, so they have it twice.

8th Grade Graduation–The name says all that I know about it.

A Spring Concert?–I’ve only heard rumours about some sort of “Spring Concert”.

Finally, one of my 3rd clarinet buddies has earned the honor of being able to play a bass clarinet! It’s so cool!
