We’re loving sharing nature and growing with children throughout these (warm) wet summer months, either outdoors or down on the allotment, so we thought you might like to join in with this week’s #sgiew theme to join in with is “GROW” –
And 11yo said I needed a bit of colour in my feed this week, so we braved the rain, and picked the luscious pink rhubarb, in a matching cardie… those massive leaves make an excellent umbrella right?!
