Life Stories Series : The Little Gardener | League City Childrens Photographer

It's that time again. Life Stories are up. If you are new to the Life Stories Series, you can see the previous posts here.  It's a 12 month project I have joined in with some of my awesome photographer friends to document our own lives and share in a great big circle.

My precious boy.  He is quite the impatient gardener.  You see waiting for things to grow can be really overwhelming.  He is always out checking on the garden and the progress of the fruits and veggies.  The other day he came running in with 2 green fruit all excited to cut them and eat them.  However, he was greeted with 2 not-so-enthusiastic parents.  You see he thought this tree was a LIME tree although it has been a lemon tree for the last 3 years.  :)  We explained this, and that those fruit weren't ready and not to pick anymore until they are yellow.

He came in telling me to "come out and see".  I went out to see this yellow spot on this lemon which he really wanted to pick because "see it turned yellow".  Do you see the longing in his eyes?  Poor little guy, but I know those lemons are well worth the wait.  Yum!  Then he headed over to his sunflower that he planted determined to get some sunflower seeds from it only to be disappointed that it too was not ready.  :(  But won't it be a fun day when they are ready after all this waiting.

So continue the circle with the talented Verity Dokter.
