One of the things I love most about riding my bike, is the awareness that comes from seeing things that are often missed when travelling in a motorized vehicle.
Last week, as I was quietly peddling along a country road, in & amongst the never-ending sea of green, a lone dandelion head stood out proudly, beckoning me to stop for a moment to make a wish.
As a child, I recall countless times picking one of these heads & with a hearty blow, watching as the tiny little florets carried my wishes off into the air.
On my return route, I kept my eyes open, in search of the lonely little head I had seen on my way out. What my crappy cellphone photo does not show clearly, is how the sunlight shining down through the little florets, made it look like mother nature had meticulously painted each delicate little floret with gold.
Of course, I couldn’t resist. I made my wish!
I promise not to tell. What would you wish for?
