Garden Bed

Archaeological Finds

Tansy finished the digging part of her Backyard Archaeology project, and was busy examining, washing and recording her finds, so Perdita and Floradora borrowed her shiny shovel…

They climbed up the ladder (made of leftover fence lattice)…

…and began digging their own kind of holes!

They planted a xanthic zucchini…

Melothria scabra

…and finished off with two Mouse melon plants!

How satisfying to see so many plants all tucked into their new garden bed!

  1. This is so endearing. Each photo is precious. The girls look darling and having an offshoot of your grandmother’s plant is wonderful. Priceless!

    • Thanks! We were so thrilled to have the Good King Henry, with memories of my grandmother and her garden in the mountains…so glad it survived the winter in its pot, and it looks happy so far in its splendid new garden bed! Thanks to the favourite photographer, and little wooden helpers for making it happen!

  2. Such a variety…will be interested to see how the mouse melons do! The photos always look so cute! And the gardners are pretty sweet. Hope the garden flourishes!!
