Baby Jude the horticulturist
I tell you this little three year old does amaze me continually. I try every Friday and Saturday to have him with me for taking Amy to and from ballet (subject to work and him waking up). We really have fun together, taking the bus, going to the garage, buying chicken cheese balls, drinks, a magazine, a toy – and then back over to the community centre to play and chat. But did you know the other side of him? Baby Jude the horticulturist.
Behind the community centre is a beautiful community garden, have a look if you happen to be at Siglap South Community Centre. It’s so nice. People all have their own little plots of flowers, veggies etc. Yep it reminds me of UK back home with you allotment, just not to the scale of that. My little man loves it there. This Friday we went to visit the gardens, yet again, at his request. We ‘gleaned’ some fresh green mangos, that had dropped from the tree, for Mum. We wandered the gardens with Jude telling me about the various plants.
He really has got a load of my Nan and Joe and Mum in him, that is clearly evident and of that I am so so proud. You can see them in him. As a a kid I was the same. Over the allotment or in the greenhouse with them growing fruit and veg and then prepping it and of course cooking it – now did you wonder when my cooking prowess comes from? He really is Baby Jude the horticulturist. Have a look.
What blows me about this one is that the tomato is green. He even knew it was a tomato when it looks like this on the vine, not when red sitting in a packet in Cold Storage. Way to go Baby Jude, you truly amazed me today – and this was only three photos of our fun together.
The we spotted a dragonfly resting calmly next to us on a leaf and we thought we would try and get some slo-mo of it flying away. Baby Jude and I nailed it I think – check those wings as it flies away, don’t see that every day.
