I'm not one for surprises, usually, but this one was nice. I have an iris blooming in my garden!

I've just returned to gardening, as HCW has a more regular schedule and EKW is off at her playgroup for most of the day on Wednesday. Last week, I worked on the southeast corner of the yard, planting tulips, crocus and daffodils. Today, I worked on the northwest hill, planting more tulips and daffodils, as well as a few calla lillies.

Elizabeth shows off the gourds and miniature pumpkins that we grew this summer in the garden, next to her pumpkin that she acquired on a recent visit to the pumpkin patch.

I've returned to gardening this week, as my fall bulbs have started to arrive. I haven't done too much yet, but was happy to get out and plant some Calla Lillies, Tulips, Daffodils, and Crocus in the southeast corner of the back yard (currently where I have purple and white Gladiolus and Dahlias). It should look pretty in the springtime, and I am excited to start planting bulbs and sowing wildflower seeds in some other bare parts of the yard, since I have 50 tulips and 50 daffodils that have arrived so far.

My mom and I used to joke that cats will try and squeeze into any possible container - no matter how ridiculously small. Happy, on the other hand, is doing her best to fill the entire space in this empty planter. Maybe I should start trying to grow cats instead of plants!

Besides the cat antics, life continues as usual at our house. I am adapting to functioning with frequently interrupted sleep. The garden is on hold for now, as I await my spring bulbs (planting should happen in fall). The house is holding together, but more projects build up as every day passes.

My two little ones are growing quickly...I am amazed that almost two months has passed since HCW's arrival. I need to take more pictures, but life is startlingly busy here. Someone always needs food, a change, a bath, or just a hug.
