I'd been noticing of late that some areas of our garden had very suddenly become overgrown with weeds, so today Aria and I got busy outside with our little forks and spades. She absolutely loved it! What a great opportunity for her to express some of that boundless energy! Right now it's like I've got a toddler on speed, so a morning in the garden was absolutely perfect:)
As is the done thing lately, she was jibber jabbering away: huge monologues interspersed with great big imitative belly laughs (think Santa). I looked up at one stage to discover that she was talking to a chubby green caterpillar about how Dadda went in the brrrm brrm to work and then she started singing part of our "fairies of the candle flame" song to a scurrying insect.
Singing the day away
A balancing act
This girl is rarely seen outside without a basket of some sort!
Aria spent quite a bit of time talking to something up the tree. I couldn't figure out what for the life of me - maybe it's her friend "fairy woof woof" Aren't some moments just delightful?
I think we'll be having many many more mornings in the garden. We are constantly going for nature walks and spend a lot of time outdoors, but how is it that I missed what is in our very own back yard?
With love and light
