I was lucky enough to have my seven year old
twin grandchildren for a few hours the other day.
(girl and boy)
They spent most of their time playing in the garden while they
were here because that's where I was.
I was pruning a few trees and shrubs, and as I cut I would drop the
little limbs on the ground as I went along.
Brooke came along to see what I was doing and picked up one of the limbs
and then two more, deciding that one can never have too many wands and flitted off
among the flower beds.
In a few minutes her brother Matthew came by and seeing the limbs on the grass,
said "Oh boy" and grabbed one up and off he went sword fighting with
some invisible (to me) enemy.
This little incident had me smiling all day and pondering on the difference
between the sexes once again.
Sharing a little pretty from the garden today.
my favorite lilac in the garden
The tree below is the same tree as in my last post but a few days
later after every bud has opened.
I love it in this stage.
Reminds me of cotton candy.
The trees in the front are now in bloom so there is an abundance of
scent all over the garden with the lilacs and the trees blooming.
The tree below is the weeping Red Jade.
I love, love, love this tree's habit. It's covered with snow
white blooms from limbs that cascade down to the ground.
