Keeping their flowers






One of the things Elle and Mimi love to do is pick flowers. Every day after school, i get a beautiful bouquet of freshly picked flowers handed to me by Elle with a huge grin on her face or small little buttercups from Mimi. The girls have always picked flowers and given them to me and it makes me feel really special. 

I am always trying to find little ways of displaying their flowers. I want them to know how much i appreciate the flowers they pick and i want to encourage and nurture that part of them. The part where they find the want to find the perfect flowers to give to me and the part where they want to be amongst the flowers to start with. It's wonderful seeing them. Elle is in her own world when it comes to flowers. She wants to be amongst them, smelling them, stroking them and picking that just perfect one for her bunch. Mimi loves colours and any bright and colourful flower she see's is like treasure to her. Many of our adventures involves flowers and it is just the way we like it!

  1. What a lovely habit for them to get into. My youngest loves to bring my things from out of the garden, it's usually handfuls of grass, but she is very proud of her gift x

  3. What gorgeous ideas! I might borrow the tape one - all the flowers my two give me end up scrunched up somewhere, which is a shame. What sort of tape did you use to attach the flowers to the wall?
