Little Treats

Since this babysitting gig began, one of my morning rituals has been to take the Bonnie Wee One for a morning walk where I walk and she rides. No matter how whiny she might be before our jaunt, she always settles down with delight and anticipation as soon as we set her in her little push-car thingie.

For the past two mornings, I have picked her two daffodils and have been quite surprised that she clutches them for the whole walk and into the house where Cuppa took this picture.



We don't have to walk far to see this glorious sight because it's right on Thesha's front lawn. This bush is not a beautiful sight for most of the year, but, for a week or two in spring, it is an absolute eye feast. When I go close I see it being swarmed by many busy little bees.

A baby clutching dandelions and beautiful pink flowers: what a treat! Life can be great.

My son quite often picks me dandelions on the way home from school, i have to put them in water when i get home, because he picked them for me!

It's a beautiful time to be outside.

I didn't realize 'til right now that my tight fisted sweaty wilted flower days are over. They're gone! Now my two run straight in, fill the glass on tippy-toe and slip the flower in before it gets the tiniest bit scrunched. Huuummmm......

What kind of bush is that? It's beautiful; such a shame it only looks like that for a short period of time during the year.

Visiting by way of Pam at Mind Trips--I've enjoyed looking around your place here, a nice blog. I, too, am doing the babysitting thing, and get dandelion boquets....:D

Life can be great indeed. Both of mine pick me flowers every day. And I put them all in water. Even the dead ones the Queen finds in winter.
