Good Apples

Some parents may swell with pride to see their child at bat. Others may get a lump in their throat at the school spelling bee. My eyes fill with tears to see Mary Ashley carrying a bouquet of flowers in her little fist. At 4, as she picks flowers she arranges them in her hand as she goes. So when she brings them to me, she already has a lovely, balanced bouquet that requires little adjustment.

I knew Mary Ashley would be eager to gather flowers from our azalea bushes for the party we hosted recently. One of her arrangements is pictured above.


But I didn't realize that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree with 2-year-old Emma. She was also excited about our pretty floral arrangements and vases filled with fresh green apples. So she left her mark on one of our displays, as well.



OK, so technically it was a bite mark, but I think she showed some artistic flair!

How funny! I thought you were going to say she put the apples in for you. But then the bite marks were such a crack up. Kids! They are so cute. You never know what they will come up with.

Hugs,
Joanne
