Picking Backyard Flowers

The girls picked  these sweet little bouquets  of flowers in our backyard this week. 

I keep a small stash of  empty jelly jars and clean plastic drive-thru milk containers
to use as vases for  just these occasions.
"E" decided to jazz up her jelly jar with a homemade label. 

Every time I pass these little  flowers on the kitchen counter, they make me smile.
It really is the little things in life.

Gorgeous! I just love all the things you do with your girls. I hope that when I am a parent I can encourage my babies to express themselves just as much. These are definitely smile worthy!!

I love those backyard flowers! We need to plant some ourselves!

So sweet! I keep a bunch of small containers, too. You don't want to miss the chance to display such pretty flowers.

Those are beautiful bouquets! Enjoy them. My 15 year old son just brought me some daisies the other day for my kitchen table. I'll miss these days when they are gone.

Oh, I could use some of these ideas. I especially love the different storage container set ups. Small play really works. Thank you for sharing.
