It’s official, my little neice Martha is on the move. She’s a quick learner, like her uncle, and on the eve of being seven months old she has mastered the art of crawling. From a very early age she seems to have had a fascination with nature and the great outdoors. Perhaps it’s an illusion, but I prefer to think not. So far we’ve had to bring the world’s sights, sounds and smells to Martha, but her new found mobility means she can now approach things at her own pace.
Martha’s look of wonderment at this delicate dandelion clock is priceless. Somehow my sister managed to capture her at just the right moment; a picture for the family album indeed. I hope Martha’s love of plants, flowers and animals grows, as my own did, and that she cherishes such things in future.
