I am wife to a magnificent man and mother to five wonderful children. Three of my children were born in the Northwest and two were born thousands of miles away in Liberia, West Africa. Birthplace is no matter, all of my children were born in my heart. This is our journey.

Necessity is the mother of invention.

This morning, right before lunch we decided to plant a planter with flowers and our raised bed with salad greens. The hose doesn't stretch to these two areas so we were using a watering can to water. We were being very careful not to drown the seeds and newly planted flowers.

Lillie said that she would be right back and this is what she came back with.

I was so impressed! It was the perfect solution for this planter. The plants got watered and I am happy to report that no drownings occurred. I love that my kids have lots of opportunities to think creatively.

We also got this whole bed planted in lettuce, green onions and radishes. But for now, all you can see is the pretty marigolds we planted at each end. It won't be long before we see a bed full of salad greens. I just love this time of year.
