We've had the coughs and sniffles around here lately, oh and let's not forget a few earaches. But amid lots of cups of tea we decided to get the seed catalogs back out and plan our children's garden for next spring. The ideas for this space have been bouncing around in my head for a bit, and I finally sat down with pen and paper and tried to get some of those ideas out. I've also come across some fabulous ideas traveling around the internet and pinned some here. I'm hoping to create a beautiful space with room for the children to garden and creeping flowers covering small secret hiding spots. So far I'm planning a balance beam, a music/banging wall, a hobbit hole door, a pile of large natural building blocks, and a vine covered tunnel and teepee.
With our plans taking shape, we headed out in the weird February warm and rain to scope the location. Currently the only part standing is our 'gnome fort,' but there is plenty of space to let our imaginations run wild.
And small patches of beauty even under the overcast skies.
And a rainbow at the end of the day, which is just the thing that magic is made from.
Stay tuned to see how our plan takes shape.
