"We must achieve the character and acquire the skills to live much poorer than we do. We must waste less. We must do more for ourselves and for each other. It is either that or continue merely to think and talk about changes that we are inviting catastrophe to make. The great obstacle is simply this: the conviction that we cannot change because we are dependant on what is wrong. But that is the addict's excuse, and we know that it will not do."

Five years old!

Well it has been five years since the youngest cloud farmer was born and it has been absolutely FANTASTIC! I love being a Dad and wouldn't change it for the world.
As he grows up, his birthdays become more important to him. Not, thankfully, because he expects a haul of presents (although with so many loving Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents and extended family he certainly gets more than his share..) but because he enjoys getting older and enjoying the responsibilities that come with it.
Lately he has become very big on gardening, he now has his own row of pot plants all given regular care regardless of whether said care is good for them or not. Mostly they survive. So when we were deciding on what to get him for his birthday the choice was easy.
And he absolutely loves them!

  1. My grandsons also love Venus fly traps. My daughters were intent on over feeding them and almost killing them when they were little.
    They love stone plants too.
