talk about it more

When she was two, Fiona regularly said "Talk about it more!" to express her desire to know more about whatever we were discussing.

Fairies go a-gardening

Our friend Paul and I took our four little flower fairies to the gardens at the local extension office this morning. It was a beautiful morning to pretend to be a garden fairy-- even garden fairies who don't want to be seen, as evidenced by one of the above photos.

We tramped through the woodland fen garden, the vegetable garden, herb garden, cosmetic garden, pastel garden, and cottage garden. There was a lot going on at that place. Ada enjoyed the soft feel of a rose petal, and the other three liked to look, but also to run, run, run as fairies are wont to do from time to time.

After looking at and smelling a number of old and new favorites in the gardens, we traveled to China! Well, not really China, but we enjoyed some high-powered pretending while walking across the sky bridge that leads from the university campus where the gardens are located to the student housing across the street. Not only was it fun to look down on the cars from the "hamster tube," it was also really fun to make noises inside there.

Other friends had meant to meet us and weren't able to make it, so we're sure we'll be back again soon. We can't wait to return to see how the gardens will have changed their clothes yet again.
