I have so many photos to share here, but first, a request.
The girls were with me recently in the garden, and they begged me to take their picture in the old children’s garden. If you are familiar with our botanical garden, there’s a really large children’s garden – but it wasn’t there when E was little. In fact, she didn’t know about it for several years after it was built. (I was initially against a play area in the garden because I just wanted the garden to be the place to explore. I’m over it now, but still we rarely go.) Anyway, there was a tiny children’s garden that used to have an outdoor train, and it still has a mini-hedge maze with a peacock fountain in the middle. The girls insisted that I take their photos, and THEN I was instructed to look up old photos of little E and F in the fountain.
So I did.
