from a small gardener


fieldstone has been removed from the middle of the perennial garden and the ground is settling in preparation for the installation of red brick pavers in early fall. the little girl thinks this spot is now her giant sandbox and has been observed digging out there with pails, shovels and trucks. and apparently she is planting, too. i laughed out loud this evening to see three solitary but strong scarlet runner bean seedlings, standing erect in the middle of the barren sand.

Well I guess most massive achievements evolve from small things. Thank you.

lucky, lucky, a small gardener. i'm never good with plants ,it's best for me to watch them rather than rear. they wilt in my hands. good luck!

The littlest kids get the luckiest with plants. I was very lucky with my three trees in my own little garden when I was a kid. I loved them so much. They became very tall and I was a proud gardener. Good for the little girl!

That is so very sweet. :)
I'm sure her love of nature and gardening has come from you. Has she seen them as yet?

I've always wanted a garden. A lot, actually. It seems as though it would be a nice thing to pay attention to during the summer. Nice and time consuming.

Enjoy your sunny summer days.

How incredibly industrious! Hopefully she is not too disappointed when the pavers do go down.
