It's so good to be living everyday life outside, again.
Playing a couple of games,
Madeleine won this one. She was thrilled.
and, you know... living.
Getting his seed potatoes ready for planting.
A game and a photo by Maddie.
We were riding bikes, today!
As always, a lovely afternoon with them.
Running, climbing, hiding, chasing, imagining, splashing, riding, investigating....
Eventually there were two starving children who were ready to be home for supper.
So home it was.
"Mom! That strawberry is getting close!" She has been watching this particular one for a few days.
Which led to my first garden investigation of the day.
Gardens are so hard to photograph at wide angle, aren't they?
The back wall is roses, for a garden border (Annabelle),
and on the outside back fence, two kinds of grapes. Mmmmm.
So many strawberries this year!
So much spinach!
More tomatoes, basil and peppers will go in some of the bare patches.
And, naturally, while I spend time poking around in the garden,
the babes are here.
That will do.
