For Creek to Bay day we chose to clean up Lakeside park. The Junior Art & Science center provided the materials and we got to work. We picked up soooo many ciggarette butts. yucky!
Everyone is battling a summer cold this week. A walk to the garden is about the excitement we have had. Dahlias at the garden were a lovely surprise.
Autumn Lights Festival at the Gardens of Lake Merritt
We found this fountain at the Lake Merritt Gardens covered with flowers! @gardens_lake_merritt
Today we went to our garden plot to check it out and see if we could start planting. We were happy to see that the soil looked good and found worms in the dirt. We watered and played around with a hoe. We decided to start with some bee friendly flowers and parsley. Next up is sugar peas. We covered our seeds with dirt and then straw to keep moisture in. We met some friendly master gardeners and talked about what to plant when and came home with some great info. I think Emma Clover is excited. I know that I am. ^_^
We love to visit the Lake Merritt gardens and today we saw five turtles in the big pond and two mallards in the smaller one. It really is a great place to hang out with little kids.
