Marin, Marin, How does your garden grow?

With bulbs and muddy babies all in a row...
I finished planting my bulbs yesterday. We've got a small flower garden between our garage & the front door & a small section around around one of our trees. I'm hoping that something will bloom there next spring, and by something, I mean the bulbs I planted and not weeds.
Then I went to water and I didn't notice that Sariah had pulled herself up next to the flower garden. When I turned the hose on, water and mud splattered everywhere, and well, you can see the effect. Then she tried eating mud. I was really bummed, because she was wearing one of my favorite onsies (the "Perfect, just like Mommy" one...) Needless to say, we both got in the tub after this, but even after a soak, the onsie might not be saved. Its being stained sticked right now.

So here are the before shots & hopefully next spring I can show you some beautiful after pictures...

Soak it in BIZ. Give it a week. Those are tough stains, and no hot water. At least most of the stain should come out. Flowers are so fun to look forward to. Good for you to plant them.

Sariah looks adorable all splattered with mud! Good luck with the stains. When we were there in June I noticed that you keep a stain stick in Sariah's room. What a great idea! I'm totally going to do that with this baby. Then I'll have a better chance of getting to those stains right away! I got out some of the boys' old baby clothes the other day and found some formula/spit-up stains that appeared while in storage (I washed them all before putting them away, but I apparantly didn't catch all the stains and they darkened with time). Now I just need to figure out if there's a way to get them out after all this time....
