I have garden envy

I’m reading an awesome book right now about creating children’s space out of doors. I so wish I had the time, money and inclination to have a stream ending in a waterfall to a small one foot deep pond in my backyard replete with all varieties of plants and small woodland creatures.

Oh, the fantasies I live.

Instead I let my kids dig in the mud in the bare spots in the yard.

And call it educational. 🙂

  1. Sounds good to me! I grew up playing with garter snakes, mud, rocks, sticks, old glass bottles…. Of course a waterfall sounds delightful too. But, for normal folks like us, a puddle with do just fine! 😉
