Sepia Saturday 135; School Health Fairy;

I have never heard of or seen a School Health Fairy. Here is my family munching on healthy treats. I have changed the photos to Sepia!

1992; my grandson Lucian munching on a piece of Watermelon. When we went out to eat in a restaurant he never wanted sweets for dessert, he always preferred a piece of fruit or a fruit salad. 

I think 1993  my daughter and Lucian in the vegetable garden. He loved to go into the veggie garden, loved  to pick and eat tomatoes, carrots, sugar peas even beans. Lilli is eating a radish...Lucian peeps out from behind the tomato bushes.

Washing the tiny carrots for Lucian..

1997; family,  enjoying eating water melons.

2005; my granddaughter Fabrizia, was fascinated with the Doctor's bag, next generation MD's. 

Unfortunately I have never met a school health fairy so this contribution will have to do.
Click the link please and you might be lucky to meet  a few.

Photo from my garden

Perfumed Darling
of cloudy winter days, blue spring skies and summer rains
 velvety petals
sweet and pretty
my wild rose.

Tuesday; Garden boo-boos;

Innocent looking with tiny razor sharp teeth and claws.

I know, It is my fault; I should wear my long sleeved gloves, or a long sleeved shirt;  I KNOW!

Problems are only opportunities with thorns on them.
