Sadly the garden has sometimes been unfairly blamed for some of the frustrations we encounter in trying to contain the excesses of small children. However a few sunny moments spent today in capturing images of the parts of our garden which provide colour, detail and interest has awakened a real appreciation for what our garden is instead of what I would like it to be. I'm sure there is a metaphor for life in there somewhere, but instead I'll just say the obvious - size isn't everything.
My two year old daughter was very intrigued by the camera as I took these shots. She asked that I show her how to use the camera then promptly pointed it at me and took this. Here is the first photo my daughter ever took of me. Camera shy as I usually am, I have to admit that I couldn't love it more.
