I wanted my leaves to be a metaphor for people. However, they mistook themselves for rabbits and are now the proud parents of three offspring.
The first (above) is a boy (he’s crocheted). He is a real chip off the old block in both colouring and body type. His mother can’t see much of herself at all in him. That abdominal hernia perhaps?
It’s OK though because next up she got her girl. Her colouring and some body features are her father’s but, well, she is at least a girl, and she can have fun dressing her up a bit perhaps?
Finally, although the third child is another boy, he looks a lot like his Mum in both colouring and shape. And , although all three siblings are so different, they will all be loved equally. Of course.
