leigh had a great idea for a birthday present for jasper – a potted flower garden all her own!

so leigh came over on sunday so that she and jasper could start that bad boy to growing!

first came the tools, the “tool belt” (as jasper called it) and the gloves!

she was stoked to have a “tool belt” just like her daddy!  he commented on how his tool belt was leather and hadn’t any flowers but she didn’t let that stop her from continuing to refer to the little apron as “just like daddies!”…

to each her own 🙂

and the gloves!!  man, she loves the gloves – and so do i!  now she doesn’t try to wear her winter mittens when she wants to wear gloves like her daddy is wearing – now she has real gloves of her own…  phew!

then came the pouring of the soil…

and then the putting of the gloves and the tools!

needless to say, jasper loved the “tool belt” as much as she loved the seeds but the entire experience was made even better by doing it with her “miss leigh” 🙂

thanks, leigh!
