This is Grandma and Grandpa's garden.
It is in full bloom and flourishing, just like my own little human flowers.
For the time being, 'gardening' is not yet my thing. However, I am quite happy wandering around on a Saturday afternoon, while the kids are busy wearing Grandma and Grandpa out, taking pictures of all the pretty things! This includes aiming the camera and waiting there like the Paparazzi with the hope of eventually getting some good shots.
This just reminds me of being this age and running around my grandparent's garden, getting lost amongst the plants. The beauty of nature is so simple and yet fascinating to these little ones.
The game they were playing at the time, was 'café.' They run back and forth to/from the sandpit, filling all different containers with sand and serving it to me and Grandma saying it's apple pie, or a latte or something!
I do like the way that Grandpa was the only one who was actually charged for ordering something at this café! My son has high-end prices as well, £6 for an ice cream!
As always, when we left to come home, we left with a selection of oddly shaped carrots, some blackberries, and apples and there was also an offer for corn on the cob! All home grown, the carrots by the kids themselves as they each have a little garden box at Grandma and Grandpa's house. What beautiful memories for both generations. Two planting boxes side by side and the differences between the two is amazing.
My daughter's sunflower is 3 times the size of her, but my sons is short and hasn't flowered yet. My son is the one who is harvesting a brilliant crop of oddly shaped carrots, but my daughter has yet to pull one out of the soil that is bigger than a pin! My daughter's lettuces got eaten by slugs but my son's flourished.
The kids have loved growing all these things though and the grandparents take pride watching their own little flowers grow and bloom too.
Have a great week everyone, I'm off to cook some oddly shaped carrots!
