kids in the garden

We had an amazing day today with a swallowtail butterfly!  My sweet bean Josie was trying to feed her basil...interestingly enough I don't think the butterfly minded her little hands in its Hibiscus flower one bit!

After being in the classroom as a teacher for many years, I found that many of my students were disconnected from nature.  Several of my kiddos had never had their little hands in soil before. 

This book is a great read for all those out there who are working to help our little people become reconnected!


  1. Thank you very much for adding GWGT in your sidebar. I will add your blog as well. I really like Deborah's blog and am honored to be in such good company. I am impressed the Swallowtail did not leave when Josie was so near. Great photos too.


Your comments brighten my day! Thanks for stopping by!
