Wee Baby Monica {Family}

Back in May when the Gardens were full of colour, the air was a tad warmer… and the trees were still of shades of greens, yellows and reds.

…There was a baby… …still warm and snug…
…and waiting to enter this gorgeous world!

We didn’t know her name yet. But we knew she was a girl.
Her Mum hadn’t met her yet, but she knew her already…
