Butterfly watching

My two-year old granddaughter excitedly summoned me yesterday.

“Mum-mum,” she called. “There’s a butterfly on your pink flowers.”

“Come see.”

It’s there, in yellow and black, at one-o-clock in relation to her head.

This morning (she stayed with me last night) she could not wait to get outside to again check for butterflies.

Love looking at life through the eyes of a two-year old.

    Wow, Avery’s two already? I feel old! There really is nothing like gardening with a young child. Today I had my teenage sons in the garden with me – complaining about pruning and ‘having’ to work with me on Mother’s Day, while my neighbor was out in her garden with her 2-year old daughter planting annuals in their fairy garden. Talk about a difference in attitude and appreciation! I hp you had a great Mother’s Day.

      Debbie, when my boys were teens they complained about garden and yard work. Now, as adults, they seek my advice on how to do these things properly. Sometimes guidance pays off.

    How sweet! And I love mum-mum instead of grandma. My mom goes by Meemaw. 🙂
