dear ms b-nature lover

Image result for organicgreendoctor school garden
you are getting there
slowly but surely

it seems that you love to go to the garden
in fact
its hard to get you to leave when we go to visit

i know those chickens are the main attractions for you

use to you would just chunk in the bread to them
drop in the trimmed leaves from the plants in my garden
like broccoli or swiss chard or the one you call the
dinosaur leaves the kale
you just hold those things in your hand as they
chew down to the end
you hold them as long as you can
before dropping the last handful
you know all their names
you call the one named chocolat
ice cream instead
the others names you seem to have them down
i like it when you say
itchy and scratchy
eventually you can be pried away from the chickens
next you go to the bird bath
yes you usually bring something over from the garden
for that little bluebird to eat that sits on the edge of
the bird bath
once you brought a lemon
which you let bob up and down like a fishing bobber
in the water that i let you hose into the bird bath

this day in the picture you brought in a swiss chard leaf
and picked a strawberry

you also always like to give that bluebird a bath
you have now mastered the art of drinking out of a water hose

then there is this purple adirondack chair that you are
drawn to
thats your favorite color
you usually like to climb in and out of that chair

your gma and i enjoyed watching you sitting on top of the
picnic table eating lunch which including broccoli
and sweet peas from my garden
you were talking away the whole time

then sometimes we go down to the citrus orchard
last week you found this large yellow lemon on the ground
and you wanted to play soccer with it

we also pitched it back and forth like a baseball
in fact once i think you threw me a curve ball

you are getting there
you little
nature lover you

the organicgreen doctor
