Window Garden



When I had to stop being a stay-at-home mom, and had to go work in an office, I mentioned to the Erratic Genius that I missed the hours of gardening that I used to indulge in while he and the Word Wizard dug for dinosaur bones, ran through the sprinkler, made mud messes, and entertained me endlessly with stories, laughter, and made-up songs.

Soon after he created a faux stained glass window garden for my office (see picture) - he was only 8 years old.

(Sadly, when my office was relocated to another building, I had to leave the garden behind - the sun had baked it to the glass. Notice the four leaf clover.)

what a beautiful thing to do - and I see why he is called Erratic Genius!

That's lovely! I can't believe he was only 8. Is he still making art?

Jen G, Oh, you have not seen anything quite yet... just wait...

Lynn, Yes he still is making art...
