Lazy Summer Evening

I would love it if Audrey grew up able to appreciate the natural beauty around her, the feeling of growing something planted by one's own hands in lovingly worked soil, the simple pleasures from the fruits of hard work, and in general a natural life. I guess I better make sure I show her how it's done!

An evening visit to the squash and pumpkin patch

Audrey spots a wee summer zucchini

She dives in to retrieve her garden treasure


Showing Mama her prize

Next stop: the strawberry patch


Audrey ate her micro-strawberry faster than the camera could capture, but one thing is for sure: no matter how crabby she might be, a trip outside with Mama and/or Daddy in tow always lifts her spirits, and ours.

  1. Some of my best memories of my childhood are of family gardening. A carrot that just came out of the ground has a delicious and distinct flavor that it loses quickly.
