sunday's are our family day and this past one we decided to try something new and headed to the highfield discovery garden. ten years ago i used to meet my old roommate at the park where the discovery garden is located to hike its beautiful paths but i never knew this amazing place existed. there was a fairy garden, a treehouse, a frog and toad pond, a butterfly garden, a vegetable garden, a scent garden, and a train. the kids had so much fun, pumping water into buckets, using collected rain water to "make it rain" on the plants, and eleanor even experienced her first tea party complete with costumes. at the end of our time there we were able to pick some of the veggies from the vegetable garden. eleanor pulled a carrot and beet straight from the ground, picked green beans, and cut a bunch of swiss chard. we definitely need to put in some raised beds at the house since she's been asking ever since if she can eat the vegetables. i can't wait to take them back!
