One of the really great things about babies is watching them enjoy new experiences and making new discoveries. It's like rediscovering things that you had forgotten are so totally amazing. Like they say "A child makes all things new again".
Anyway this layout celebrates the simple pleasure of working in the garden. Enjoying an hour or so of sun and fresh air after what seems like a long winter and finally getting out there to prepare the veggie patch.
Recently my daughter went off shopping and hubbie decided to tidy up the garden - assisted by young Miss L. Pity he didn't have the presence of mind to dress madam in something more appropriate. I'm sure most people would pull on some gumboots and old jeans and not a pale pink ensemble!
By the time son-in-law realized what was going on, it was too late. Bless his little cotton socks, for instead of rushing madam into the house for a clean up and hiding the evidence before "She Who Must Be Obeyed" returned (and knowing how much a scrapbooking granny would have enjoyed this moment) he reached for the camera instead.. Happy Happy Day!
After I had finished the layout, I decided to look through my quotes folder for something about Spring and I found this:
"In the Spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt" (Margaret Atwood)
[Note to Self: next time why don't you check the Quotes Folder BEFORE you do the layout!]
And so here we have it, Miss L discovering the feel, the smell (and taste I suspect) of dirt.
