Dreaming of Yummy Gardens

Carrot Drawing

We only have small carrot sprouts poking out now … but one day sooooon !!!

On the other hand, our beans and peas are really growing.

Garden Greens



Jade says her funny doodles are “rascals” and friends.

Their friendship is based on “joking around” and smiles.

I asked for “Pressed Pants” not “Plants” !!!

Pressed Plants / Drawing

All joking aside, Jade and I had a blast at StrongStart yesterday.

StrongStart is a FREE early education program in BC, Canada.

The top drawing is a fun doodle from our pressed plants (shown below).

Pressed Plants / 2

Jade really loved being in the trails and picking leaves and flowers.

And I really liked drawing from our exploration.

This exercise helped me focus on unique details and shapes of our local plants.

Rocking Snails

Early this morning, I saw an amazing snail during my walk.

When I arrived home, I told Jade all about it.

Instantly, she wanted to draw the snail with a bunch of friends.
