Earth Month is Almost Over?

Well I do not know about you guys but for me April flew by! Between Easter, the local Fossil and Dino Fair, Earth Day, going out on maternity leave, Midwife visits, my Baby Shower, meeting with the OBs who will be doing both our c section as well as tying my tubes, spring cleaning and nesting, homeschooling, and getting Bug ready for Kindergarten.... I am exhausted!
I realized this morning that another year of the GCDC has come and I completely forgot about it. There are no local events for it this year and as River has not yet arrived I probably wouldn't be going to one anyway. However I am fully supporting all my friends around the globe celebrating cloth diapers this day. On that same note though diapers have been a theme for us this week. We have been dying, prepping, stripping and hanging dipes on the line, all in preparation for our little Rainbow girl. (Don't mind all our piled up summer toys and gardening stuff... it still hasn't gotten warmer than 60ish here.)

In other Earth Month news though we finally had time to tackle some gardening prep. There isn't a whole lot I can do right now being almost 36 weeks pregnant and with as much rain as we have had, but I did transplant some of our things into bigger pots.
I put both my daisies as well as Asya's roses in my biggest pots. I hated to change Asya's pot but I conserved every last leaf, bud and drop of soil into the new pot. Nothing was left behind. I know she is long gone by now but the idea of her remains in that soil. I combined some of my herbs into a bigger pot, as a small herb garden. I cut back root systems, added compost to all the pots, reworked a lot of the plants and of course transplanted my pepper and tomato seedlings into pots to allow them to grow bigger. Hopefully soon it will be sunny and warm enough to start leaving the pots outside. After my baby girl arrives I will be tackling getting the gardens planted.
Well so that was our Earth Month, I hope yours was equally busy and fun. I leave you with a couple pictures from Easter and our Fossil Fair. For all of you at the GCDC, have a great time!
