The kids were off of school today, so I took them to a local nursery to pick up some pansies to plant in our front and back flower pots.  Unfortunately we didn't find the kind of pansies that we wanted, but we did find chickens!  The kids had a ball feeding them.  :)

After that we wandered around the nursery looking at all of the plants and trees.  We found some Eastern Redbuds, that beautiful spring flowering tree that has those bright purple flowers.  Unfortunately, they were a little out of our price range, so I just thought, "Oh well...someday."

Then we stopped at Aldi on the way home, and what do you know but we found some Eastern Redbud saplings on sale!!  Considering the price of $15, they were definitely within our price range!  So the kids helped me pick one out, we took it home, and Henry and Caroline helped me plant it.  The four of them decided to name it "Redbuddy".  Hopefully it will thrive, but even if it doesn't, we're only out $15!
