Growing sunflowers and Measuring Angels

posted in: Lesley Ely, Polly Dunbar | 2

As you can see from the logo to the right, J, M and I are taking part in NurtureStore‘s Sunflower Challenge 2011. Not only are we growing and nurturing (hopefully) competition winning sunflowers 😉 we’re also taking the opportunity to read plenty of books about these wonderful followers of the sun.

Today I’m guestposting over at NurtureStore with our second sunflower picture book review, this time a review of Measuring Angels by Lesley Ely and illustrated by Polly Dunbar. This is a book so rich in ideas and inspiration it’s hard to know where to start. It explores bullying and beauty in sensitive and thought provoking ways and is accompanied by gorgeous illustrations bursting with joy and colour.

To read the rest of my review head on over to Cathy’s great blog.

As for our sunflowers? They’re coming along very nicely amongst the courgettes, alliums and columbines!

    Good morning Zoe. It’s such a treat to have you as a guest again today – and your sunflowers are looking good. Wishing you lots of sunshine!

      Thank you Cathy! We’re definitely getting plenty of sunshine at the moment. What the garden really needs, however, is a good deal of rain!
