Here is William's entry. When you say garden to him he immediately thinks of vegetables! I, however, think of Monet. *Sigh*
Love William's veggie garden!!ReplyDelete
What a wonderful garden. Are there flowers in his veggie garden, too? My daughter drew a picture also featuring a person in a red hat surrounded by flowers. Since she is only in preschool hers is pretty simple. Will have to post it sometime.ReplyDelete
