Getting Crafty In Our Garden

The Summer Holidays are now officially over and Cherry has started her first week of “Big Girls” Kinder. We’ve loved spending time in our Summer garden, watching our Sunflowers grow, harvesting the poppy seeds and feeding “Milly and Poppy”, the Indian Miner birds that fly into our garden and say hello to us each morning.

We’ve also been busy taking care of our pot plants, decorating them, sewing seeds and watering them in the evenings. CleverPatch sent Cherry and Me a crafty garden package including 4 small terracotta pots, porcelain markers, plant labels, twine and some seeded paper flowers. Here’s what we made…
