This patchwork of art squares by children (to inspire us to eat more healthily) was part of the Royal Horticultural Society’s campaign for school gardening at the Tatton Park Flower Show.
It has the side effect of making me smile whenever I look at it.
Now where’s my dried cherry stash?

Wonderful idea! Wonderful free expression. I’m smiling too. Thank you.
The little faces are brilliant – I’m glad they made you smile too.
That is sweet! And bring on the dried cherries.
I should have left them stashed – I’ve eaten them all now. They were good, sticky ones.
What a great idea; kids’ art is so honest and joyful.
‘Honest and joyful’ is a great way of putting it.
I love childrens art and this is fabulous and a great message too.
I’d vote for kids to do the artwork for all our public campaigns. That way we’d get some smiles mixed in with the messages.
That is SO smile inducing!
Isn’t it just?
I love the squares. You are what you eat!
That makes me a grapefruit and a chocolate this week.
That’s a combination we don’t often think of, but it would work as well as chocolate orange.
Being forced to smile is good, very good at the moment.
You inspired me, Margaret. I was half inclined to hold this back and see if you went for ‘cheerful’ on Saturday. I did have to search a bit to find something that made me smile, given the state of our politics. We may need more pictures that will raise smiles, I fear!
There’s a lot of work in this, but so worthwhile. I didn’t realise quite how charming it was until I looked back at the pictures afterwards.
I am reaching for chocolate-covered raisins — do they count? I agree totally that anything that brings a smile is most welcome right now. Kudos to all the teachers and others who supervised and helped the kids! Gardens in schools? Brilliant!
Go on then, seeing as it’s you. 🙂
