Making daisy chains

Small boy makes a daisy chain
Summer idyll. A small boy sits splay-legged on a lawn among flowers, threading daisies into a chain. He is a picture of concentration. The year is about 1976 and the boy is Philip, sitting on a lawn in the grounds of a southern German castle.

I made the shirt and trousers (where did I get the time?) but I suspect my mother, who was visiting Germany for the first time, put the leaf in his buttonhole.
