In fairness, they all enjoyed the hand sewing too.
This was my real happiness yesterday, though - my first ever saffron! Having planted the bulbs less than a month ago I was hoping for a harvest this autumn, but I not banking on it. The girls are intrigued by being able to grow something so easily that is worth its weight in gold (indeed, I'm fighting hard not to have the whole garden turned to a mini saffron farm). I'm wondering if I should add flashes of gold or orange to the purple and grey blocks that I'm making in celebration of our first harvest!
