A bit of Gardening #countrykids

Last week I had a day where I finished work at lunch and got to pick Mouse up from pre-school. We had a lovely walk back looking at the flowers and the butterflies we saw along the way.

Once we were home we headed straight for the back garden as it was so bright and sunny. Mouse headed for the bit we have that used to be a pond but has been filled in with stones. She was digging away and playing with her trucks happily so I thought I would do a bit of tidying around the garden.

We are not gardeners, we can mow the lawn and we can pull up weeds, that is about it!

So I was pottering about and I found a bucket at the far end of the garden. In it appeared to be a lot of dead weeds, I gave it a little wiggle and I said ‘not sure how I am going to get that out Mouse’, she promptly walked over, grabbed it and said ‘Like this….’Mouse countrykidsCountry Kids from Coombe Mill Family Farm Holidays Cornwall
