looking the part

I was out in the garden and Amy was lying in the hammock talking to me.

Then she wasn't in the hammock anymore.

I didn't think anything of it.

Then she came around the side of he house with some self sown tomato seedlings from beside the sandpit. (I've got no idea, either.)

'Can I help plant these?'

'Sure. But you need to take off your new school shoes and put your boots on. It's muddy out here.'

Amy left her tomato seedling at my feet and ran off around the front of the house again.

I kept weeding and pottering and just doing my thing and did think that she was taking a while but this is Amy so she could have quite easily gone in for shoes, found a stray crayon and forgotten her planting plans altogether.

But no.

'I'm ready!!'

I turned around and had to laugh.

And take a picture for posterity.

Boots? Check.

Gloves? Check.

Trowel? Check.

And what's that?

That's my gardening hat. It's a tad too big for her.



After I adjusted the hat so she could actually see we had a great time planting the tomato.

A significantly shorter time than she took getting ready to plant the tomato but still, it's important to look the part, right?
