In April I helped my little girl plant her first flower garden from wildflower seeds.
It’s been such a fun process and a great learning experience for both of us! It has been sweet to watch her water her garden and ask curious questions. We’ve seen bees come and go collecting pollen on their legs. Butterflies too. She’s picked some of the flowers to make adorably messy bouquets. It’s been great. Now the flowers are slowing their bloom and leaves are starting to turn a bit brown. I’ve taken a ton of pictures to preserve these special moments, but I thought I would take it a step further and preserve some of the flowers by pressing them in a book and framing them. I took some tips from Martha and I’m so happy with the results.
Aaah. I can breathe a satisfied sigh of relief that I was able to preserve (literally) memories of Lily’s first flower garden. Hmm. I wish I could do that with all the special moments.
Until next Monday!
