For Lola, the garden is a true development space. All senses are encouraged: It’s not just about touching, but also smelling at everything which smells good, observing the marvelous worms, snails and beetles creeping around and looking at ladybugs, dragonflies, and bees while flying. Once we found the perfect place, we were ready to start buiding. Lola watched me closely while I did the construction and then, together with her cousin, she helped putting the plants into the ground. More than anything else she enjoyed putting her little hands in the wet earth. She loves water, like all children, so the absolute highlight is to water her plants every evening.
