One girl in my family is fascinated by all things nature.
She would run her fingers across the grass and smile at the sound of a rustling leaf, as a baby.
She grows seeds and draws tulips and notices the patterns in the clouds.
She picks flowers.
And a girl who picks flowers needs pockets in her skirts.
So I made her (and her sister) one each from this tutorial.
To celebrate this girl, and affirm her love of creation, we got up close and personal with some blossoms in a day trip to Toowoomba's Carnival of Flowers.
All the kids had a turn taking photos so that they will have plenty of visuals when they want to sketch or remember.
And the girls ended the day with some dancing in a gorgeous garden at dusk.
