Never too young to start learning to garden;) Helping Mom and cooling off in the fresh water.Marnie
Hi Marnie,I just thought I'd let you know that's our grandson. We have him most Saturdays. He loves doing real things, like helping me load and unload the dishwasher. I think we'll have some good gardening experiences as he grows. He's such a sweetie!
What a big helper you have....precious!
pretty darn good for a little guy
What a cutie! I'd say he'd be a willing helper. :-) You're fortunate to have him so often!
Kids and playing with water just seem to go together. How cute!
Hi Sue, kids and water, the perfect match up! He looks like a feisty fellow too, my favorite kind! :-)I want to comment on the previous posts too. About the header, is it possible to make the photo larger to fill the space? Then would don't have to center it. I use wordpress so don't know how to fix things anywhere else. I do like your photo though.About the curbing, unless it is already done and this is too late, move everything far away! Our curbs were done and they threw dirt and gravel everywhere, not caring about the plants at all. At least that was our experience so I wanted to warn you. :-)Frances
Sue, I love your new blog header picture! Your helper is adorable!!!
Oh Sue that is the best little reseed I have ever seen. What a doll!
He is sooo cute, I am trying to encourage my little grandson Bertie(22 months) to enjoy gardening and plants. I can't wait for him to grow a little older so he can come and stay and help me out on my allotment.
Hi,I think gardening can be contagious! It is a good kind of contagious though!I bet he will always love his time spent in the garden with his grandma.Rosey
Sue: Make work a game and they can do it all day.
Thanks for the nice comments. Yes, he is a feisty fellow. When we go places, he wants to walk without his hand being held. We always have music on while we are working in the kitchen. He also likes to take potatoes out of the bag and put them in a bowl. Frances, thanks for the warning. I keep asking whether they are going to walk on the other side of the 18 inches, and they say my plants there should be OK, but not getting a clear answer whether they're actually going to work in that area. I never considered flying gravel. I'll have to go down the block and observe their work. It's going to start 5 blocks away, so I'm not sure when they'll get here.
Now that's a keeper !!!Put a smile on my face.
Very cute! It looks like he has caught the gardening bug!
Hi Sue~~ Oh the memories... my little guy is now a strapping 25 year old. It seems like just yesterday he was watering plants and digging holes and playing with trucks. This little guy is a sweetie. Blink and he'll be all grown up.
Water is a magical thing isn't it? What a cutie pie!!!
