A children’s garden

With my new born strapped to my chest, we spent countless hours in the garden together. As out little grew, our garden changed…the running, jumping, skipping and falling of a toddler demanded a softer growing space.

With the big “8” around the corner, our garden will change yet again. Our daughter wants her own space to grow, experiment and “be”.

Plants that were quite fun during her toddler stage were dwarf varieties like “Tom” pea, lettuce and tomatoes. Berries are always a fan favorite- be careful with the thorns. Colorful pint sized garden tools and a heaping pile of soil were all the tools we needed for a fun filled afternoon.

As we both continue to grow I am appreciative of the time we have together to tend to our inner and outer garden.
