Incredibly beautiful imagery Barbara. The saturation of both colour mixed with the pin sharp detail makes this a real eye opener and a great image.

This really is excellent Barbs, tactile, green (even the yellow bits), like a clenched fist opening up.
You've got a good scheme going. Make sure the children are around to dig some potatoes some time, if they've never done it before it's an amazing moment!

Barbara, I hope the enthusiasm you have instilled in these children is long lasting; much as I love technology and it's benefits, learning how to grown things and understanding where food comes from has got to be an improvement on sitting in front of a computer/Ipod chatting about rubbish on face book and such like.

That withstanding, great image and a wonderful image for Jodi to treasure as her creation just begins to flow.
