These sunny, warm days are really working to my advantage at the museum. I brought a group of local elementary school students to our 17th century house today to tour the gardens and plant some seeds. It's been on the schedule since February, but a normal March day would have been a lot chillier.
Instead, the kids got to plant nasturtium & marigold seeds in peat pots (for eventual planting in their home gardens) and tour the housewife's garden in the bright sunshine. It was a lovely afternoon.
