In the garden...

9 Aug 2012












A sunny morning spent in the garden. The kids spent ages making a potion with mud and leaves and anything else they could find. Elizabeth's goggles were apparently necessary so she didn't get any dust in her eyes when digging for ingrediants!

Giant footprint painting was one of our crafty summer holiday things to do. Archie just loved doing this...falling over several times from laughing so much.

  3. Oh that looks such fun! And I love the goggle picture, my little one has taken to wearing his ear defenders (bought for a festival last year) so he can look 'like a spaceman' - he wore them to the park yesterday! xx

  4. What a lovely post. I remember KP making mud and rose petal pies! I wasn't too impressed at the use of the rose petals - always selected from the nicest looking rose bush!
    Enjoy the weather!

  6. That is such a fun idea! I have a couple of old sheets that would make an excellent canvas...I am getting so many great ideas from your blog lately! Love that shot of the blackberry and the painted nails, by the way, it's lovely. x

  8. These are some lovely ideas for simple fun Caroline. And your two looked like they had a blast. I love the colours of Elizabeth's nail polish and they go so well with the blackberry, that's a lovely photo.
