Living Arrows

Welcome back to Living Arrows, a post which celebrates childhood. I intend on creating as many of these weekly photos as possible because they are great to reflect on all together.

The project originally took its name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran ~
"You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth"

We are nearing the end of the PYO season; just pumpkins to go I think. The last time we went we spent a whopping £17 on blackberries! The kids really enjoyed picking them and foraging for the biggest, juiciest berries, and so did I! We got carried away though, and ended up with three full punnets. The freezer is stocked with berries ready for breakfast smoothies or a quick dessert and we had a huge blackberry crumble. Perhaps Lily would like to make jam with me soon.

Lily is desperate to go again to pick some sweetcorn but it has been so wet lately. Hopefully we'll get some good photos of all three children with a pumpkin each very soon.

Thanks for reading, enjoy your week.

  1. Wow this zoo looks very nice to visit. I like this monkey is ready for Halloween! #LivingArrows

  2. That's the same one we go to - we went this weekend and got a pumpkin, sweetcorn and runner beans - I love PYO #LivingArrows

  3. Lovely photo. We went to a PYO farm for the first time this year and already I can't wait to go back and pick more berries.

  4. Oh I love pick your own farms! We only usually go once a year so should take a leaf out of your book and go more often! x

  5. Wow that's a LOT of blackberries, I want to make some Jam now though!
