Now that the weather is getting a bit better we had a lovely afternoon where we spent a bit of time in the garden. It was something so simple yet Boo had a whale of a time, she explored the grass and all of the bushes (we really need to tidy our garden now that spring is here and the grass really needs a cut.) But Boo didn’t seemed to mind the long grass and she walked lifting her legs up really high as if she needed to reach above the grass, it was so cute to watch!
Boo found some stones, and she picked three which she then carried about and kept putting down in a little pile and then picking up and moving to another part of the garden, I have left these stones to one side so that she can play with them when we next go out in to the garden to play.
It was such a simple thing but it was so amazing to watch Boo explore. When the wind gusted she stood still and gasped as the wind moved her hair and moved across her face, she was delighted by it!
Boo discovered a snail, she picked him up so gently and the disappeared into his shell and then she popped him back gently on the ground, Boo has never seen a snail before, but from the way she handled him (I don’t know maybe he was a lady snail? I am not sure how you tell?) she just seemed to know that he needed to be treated carefully.
It was a little on the cold side, and as Boo doesn’t like hats or gloves we sadly had to come in sooner than Boo liked, and she did get upset, but we did some painting and she was happy again.
It is so lovely that Boo could have so much fun just outside in our back garden… we REALLY need to tidy it up and start cutting the grass regularly again (we have not cut it since before the winter) I have also decided to get some outdoor specific toys for Boo so that she can play out there I am thinking of water/sand table and maybe a slide. I really want to see the garden as an extra room in the house so to speak so that Boo can spend as much time as possible outside over the spring and summer.
