Growing babies

International Dylan Thomas day
Today is International Dylan Thomas Day. How did I not know about it?

Apparently it is held every year on May 14th, a commemoration of the day Under Milk Wood was first read on stage in New York in 1953. Lots of events are taking place in Swansea (his birthplace), all over Wales and indeed the world. 

Anyway, belatedly, here's my favourite quote from Milk Wood:
"Nothing grows in our garden, except washing. And babies."

I loved that when my babies were small and it was oh so true. And what better thing is there to grow in your garden that babies?
