Plants Galore!

Ahhh...spring break is over!!!  I SO ENJOYED SLEEPING IN!!!!!!!  Did you have spring break; if so, did you travel?  Enjoy the sun?  Veg?

Since I have spring fever, here are a few pictures of our plants that are decorating our window ledge!  Fresh O2 is constantly being germinated and given off in our classroom!  We love our green.

Soon we will be planting field flowers (10-15 day germination-my favorite) will be coming!!!

Colorful and green smiles,
