@ the discovery garden

Last weekend we met Jan-Ma and The Grandfather at the National Arboretum to take a peek at the Discovery Garden. We live so close to the Arboretum, driving past it often, watching the plantings and growth from car windows with enthusiasm. It's lovely to think Saskia will grow up around the corner from, what will be, an expansive and beautiful mosaic forest parkland.

Saskia slept in the Manduca as we meandered through the Discovery Garden 'rooms', and hiked up the hill to the look out to sculpture spot. When she woke she joined her grandparents in the music tent and bounced on The Grandfather's knee, fascinated by the bluegrass and folky sound of local band, Dr Stovepipe. She looked so sweet. Front row. Staring ahead, mouth gaping. Head bobbing around. An image I won't forget.

*I should finally attribute the majority of photographs on this blog to Meu Amor (K)...he's a clever one x

  1. What a great spot to live close by to. I love that last photo and what a pretty bonnet Saskia is wearing!

    P.S Thanks for your radio info the other day in your comment. Who knew you were a radio lover?! I do love the Tivoli one but the Orla Kiely one is high up on my wishlist as well. I actually prefer the colour of the ABC Evoke one but the handle on the Orla one is so much nicer. Decisions decisions :) So hard to justify the $$$ at the moment though...
