Day 20 - Peter Rabbit Garden

Today Danielle stayed home sick, 
which was horrible because she missed school and didn't feel well. 
But by 11am she felt much better.  
As usual. 
What was nice was that we cuddled on the couch and read 
"The Complete Stories of Beatrix Potter". 
Well, we didn't read all the stories, just the ones involving that naughty little rabbit, Peter.  

Afterwards, we decided to make a "Peter Rabbit Garden", 
growing all of Peter's favorites from Mr. McGregor's garden.  
And I promise we will not even attempt to put any rabbits in a pie! 
We decided on a location that is not used for anything but our hobby of growing weeds. 

Then Danielle made a list of all the vegetables that we should include in our Peter Rabbit garden. 
We went to our local nursery. 
It's a dangerous place, any day.
But today Danielle had a list! 
I should have read the list first! 

Danielle was busy collecting everything on her list, 
while I was walking around looking at the ponds with Leo. 
They have 3 nice ponds, 
and fish! 
When we finally finished and came inside, 
Danielle and the nursery lady were carrying in a plum tree! 
Our garden is about 10X10! 
Thankfully, she was understanding! 
We got everything else on the list but blackberries.
