Rhubarb man - superhero!

Isn't it nice to see that today's kids don't need a PS3 controller in their hand to have fun? Léon managed a whole afternoon just with rhubarb leaves today. First, when it was still quite warm he made one into a sun hat and wore it round the patio. Later as it became cooler, he found they were large enough to wrap around him. I think he intended to use it to warm up but within minutes he's become Rhubarb man, Super Hero. Later I even caught a glimpse of Anna walking past my bedroom window with one draped around her neck like a feather boa (and another hanging out of the back of her bikini bottom, as a kind of tail) but as I was working at that point, I didn't manage to get a photo. Here's hoping we are in for a summer of simple childhood pleasures...
