Scenes from the day

– Fainjin and Babess on their bellies in the driveway, looking at ants and claiming excitedly to have found “a goldbug”!  (Not Edgar Allen Poe’s one, a character in Richard Scarry’s “Cars and Trucks and Things That Go“).

– Babess carrying around hydrangea flowers bigger than her head, and asking whether she can have them in her bedroom.

– Having filled the house with huge flowers, we “planted” the rest of them in the garden:

a definite improvement

– Fainjin and Babess making a Lego “farm” together – Fainjin specifying exactly where the trees and flowers would go, and Babess gathering up the various animals to put them where he showed her.

– The pair of them sitting on the back doorstep with mugs of milo and asking, “Can we have some fud?” not knowing I was on my way with a gingerbread man each.  The surprise afternoon tea was met with great approval.

      It *is* mid-summer here – although it would be hard to tell that from the past couple of days’ weather! Since those pics were taken it has been cold, rainy and windy. But you’re always welcome to visit 🙂
