Here is a poem I wrote a while back which some of you may remember – I was inspired by my very potbound lemon tree which I ‘released’ into the citrus garden.
Michael took the photo of me and added the caption ‘great gardener’ – hahaha – he loves his Mum 🙂
Now if you want to read one of the funniest short stories about the dangers of too many things lemon, pop over to the wonderfully talented Selma in the City (Selma Sargent). She wrote the story especially for the Citrus Fiesta.
My ten year old son Michael loves to use his camera, and this is a photo he took of me in the citrus/chook garden area of our backyard. He likes to use the ‘frames’ that come with the camera and I think they look great too.
He labelled the photo of me ‘great gardener’. Isn’t he a sweety!
I wish it was true, but I have been a bit slack in the gardening department in the last year. I plan to get stuck into it soon – promise ;).
I am trying to get Michael to be systematic with his photography, which includes downloading the images onto the computer and creating some sort of filing system for each download (eg., folder labels). He got a bit carried away one day and labelled individual photos.
I am only telling you this because it was so funny when I heard Michael mumbling under his breath about what a pain it was to label each photo. He’d taken some photos of discarded finch boxes and was getting sick of trying to work out new labels for each one. In the end he got down to ‘another old nest’ and ‘I’m getting sick of this’ – haha.
Those Gouldian finches sure do a lot of work to make a nest – amazing stuff.
Michael so loves his sister 🙂
Here’s a ‘creepy kangaroo’!
Well done Michael – you’re a champion photographer and creative labeller 🙂 !
