First flower of spring

What do you think this is?

To the untrained eye it looks like a crumpled dandelion. To me it is something entirely more magical.

My son gave me this flower. He pulled it out of the pocket of his jacket when I went to pick him up from school. He was disappointed to see the condition it was in.

"Don't worry about that flower mummy, I'll get you a new one that's beautiful like you."

I didn't surrender my flower. It took it home and placed between the pages of a really thick book. After it is pressed and dried a plan to laminate it and turn it into a bookmark so I can have something to remember this pure innocent gesture of love from my son.


  1. Awww, that's so sweet Zara! What a beautiful moment! Hope you guys had a fantastic trip!

  2. It was great Ashlie - I just wish the flight was less tiring!
