Botanical Gardens & Pippi Goes Emo


Sheffield is one of the greenest cities in the UK, so on a very sunny morning we made the most of it! Sheffield's Botanical Gardens has long been a popular visit destination for our family. It was one of the first places we took a newborn Bailey on his first trip out in his pram and I have happy memories watching him feed the squirrels when he was a toddler. Its strange to be here without him but he is immersed in a world of exams at the moment...

Its a great place for our budding photographer to take some photographs though:-)



The huge glass pavilion was re-opened in 2003 after years of being very rundown and unloved, sadly it wasn't open this morning as we were here so early which is a shame as we love inside going to look at the banana tree!

We managed to locate the bear pit.....


And found the bear waiting inside for us....



After our walk we headed up to a specialist hairdresser for Piper to have a much coveted "Emo" haircut, she has wanted one now for about a month but I said she should really think before having so much of her hair cut off..... here she is before:


And after:


She loves it and I think it looks fabulous but I have to admit to wanting to have a little cry watching huge chunks of her hair falling to the floor-the hairdresser even gave me a piece. My baby girl is all grown up...
