Backyard Fun

On a sunny day today in Raleigh Dominic had a little fun with Mommy. It was approx 90 degrees out, so he got to take his "bath" with the hose. He really loves the water, and almost didn't want to go inside afterwards.

I also included some photos of my birthday gifts from Kirsten and Ginger. Kirsten knew I was mesmerized by the Topsy Turvy tomato planter on TV, and found a website with how to make one from local materials. We put together two of these, one with red tomatoes and one with yellow varieties. I also planted cilantro and green onions on the exposed soil. Ginger's present was along the same vein, but is called a "Salad Ball." Somewhere between a disco ball and a lettuce pinata, it's a cool way to have salad greens up and out of the reach of dogs and rabbits. Likewise for the tomatoes, hopefully we can have a long summer of fresh vegetables.
