A lion taggie for a brand new baby girl. I have known her mum for 20 years and a bunch of us who worked together all those years ago met up on Saturday. We chatted, laughed, ate, sang and took turns holding that sweet baby girl. I didn't get the taggie finished in time, which is the story of my life at the moment, but it's nearly done. Thankfully, 8 week olds aren't too fussy about these things.

Sweetie has taken it upon himself to teach the Duckling to crawl. Around and around he goes, getting dizzy while she coos and laughs. She grins her gummy grin and slaps her hands on the floor in delight while he races around her on hands and knees in ever-tightening circles. At some point they're going to knock heads and it will all end in tears (as Mr Duyvken's Oma liked to say, although she said it in hollandse) but for now it's all joy. Sometimes all you need is for the right now to be good.
Breathe in.Breathe out.

Almbacken is a swedish blog brimming with drool-worthy garden photos. If I woke up in a couple of years and my yard looked like this I would be a very happy woman.
Hedgerow is also a beautiful blog. She loves roses and although I am not planning on planting any myself I adore seeing hers and reading though her archives.
Our yard is a place for playing, catching sunshine, drying washing, eating, fixing bikes and, hopefully soon, for growing. I look forward to changing it from a yard into a garden.
