She's been very much my garden helper these past months and now Thursdays in the garden without her simply won't be the same.
This week's post is a little tribute to my gorgeous girl who's worked so hard with me this past year.
Starting to prepare the raised veg beds back in winter.
And digging up the buttercups...
Getting the first seed trays ready with her brother, and planting some seeds with Daddy.
Potting on, and watering her seedlings.
She planted a bean in a yoghurt pot at nursery. We potted it on, and she watered it every day during the heat wave. She was very pleased with the results...
Her own small sweetpea garden.
She helped us clear the base for the new greenhouse, and was the first one to pootle in it once it was built!
Gathering the greenhouse crops.
Helping with the front borders.
From the tiny seedling that she was, I have fed her, kept her warm, protected her as much as possible from the elements, given her space to grow, supported her when she's felt wobbly.
And she, in turn, has grown into a beautiful confident girl; a bright, tall Poppy.
Now it's time for you to branch out just a little, Roh.
And we will be there, watching you blossom.
