“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder without any such gift from the fairies, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in." - Rachel Carson

Harvest Time

This is the first year that Rowan has truly shown an interest in gardening, and this weekend she got to reap what she had sown? Hath soweth? Well, you know what I mean. Anyway, we planted some carrot seedlings and a late crop of lettuce and kale a few weeks after we came back from Hawaii, and she decided it was high time to see what those carrots had been up to under ground. She was so cute when she pulled them out of her little raised bed and saw they were ready to eat. We took them on our picnic lunch and she was very proud, sharing one with each of us and her grandparents. Don't ask me why this kid is wearing a hunting hat already- she has more outfit changes each day than most celebrities...apparently it's what to wear when you're harvesting things that are also orange.

After some time in the garden we headed to Chase's Daily for a morning coffee and some bakery treats, and I couldn't help but take some pictures of their gorgeous flower bouquets. Rowan liked them too, as you can see!
