My Rose Tree. I'll have to take more pics when the flowers start blooming!
This is just one of the beautiful roses on the rose bushes we planted. They smell SO good!
This is the kids flower garden. We recycle an old sand box to use as the border.
While picking up trash the kids also picked me some wild flowers. We planted them in the yard. I don't know if they will survive but we will try!
HAPPY EARTH DAY!
PS I heard about this great website this moring on GMA. Check it out!

Kent's 6th birthday falls on Easter and over Spring Break this year. We decided it would be hard to have a birthday party this week so asked Kent what he wanted to do instead. Recently Kent found out that the Civil War started on April 12th (his birthday) at Fort Sumter (a short drive from our house). So instead of a party we took a family trip to Fort Sumter. We had a great time. It was a beautiful day with 70 degree weather and a nice breeze. The trip started with a 30 minute ferry ride to Fort Sumter. We spend about an hour touring the island before the return trip. HAPPY BIRTHDAY KENT!
South Carolina had seceded from the Union, yet Union forces still occupied Fort Sumter at the entrance of Charleston Harbor. The South demanded that Fort Sumter be vacated. The North refused. Finally, on April 12, 1861, South Carolina Confederate troops from nearby Fort Johnson fired on the fort - the start of a two-day bombardment that resulted in the surrender of Fort Sumter by Union troops. The Civil War had begun!
