Flowers in Breckenridge
I love walking down the streets in Breckenridge, Colorado and seeing the beautiful hanging baskets of flowers.
I also love the fact that you can find dandelions happily thriving in this perfectly manicured town. I saw a little girl carrying a bouquet as she walked down the sidewalk and she looked like me, at age 6.
When Don and I took a break on a hike the other day, I decided to rest and make a dandelion necklace.
I remember how clever I felt doing that as a little girl.
I wore my necklace for a little while, but then tossed back into the field. I only felt a little guilty about messing with nature on my hike. (Those seeds will grow new dandelions.) Plus, I was thinking like a 6 year old. We were always encouraged to pick dandelions in the yard!
