Dandelion Wishes #FolksyFriday

I hadn`t given any thought to the theme for today`s Folksy Friday at all and decided that I really ought to. So of I toddled to Folksy and looked at the front page for inspiration. There I saw dandelion seeds and decided to put dandelions into the search to see what I came up with.
There weren`t hundreds but I was quite surprised by how many did appear and delighted too as that meant my theme was settled.
Seeing dandelions and their seeds always takes me back to my childhood, picking them and blowing to count the time. We called them dandelion clocks and when the seeds blew away they were fairies. I know many people also make wishes when they blow them.
I hope you enjoy my theme and choices today. I think it`s nice to do something a bit different.
Yesterday I looked after my youngest grandson while my daughter was at work. I always ask him what he would like to do and it was no surprise that he wanted to go on the bus.
We had a lovely time ambling about and having our lunch out, then it was home for a little play before he went home. Lovely to spend some time with little ones, they have such a different view of the world, great to talk to them.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

Dandelion clocks are memories of childhood
when all things were simple and good.
We could play out all day long
and nobody thought it was wrong.
We picked the clocks and blew
them so hard the seeds flew
high through the air, dancing,
like fairies with their prancing.
We didn`t know when we scattered seeds
that we were making many more weeds.
It was all just childish fun
over when the day was done.
A childhood that was wild and free
playing all day, my brothers and me.
Not so for children of today
they don`t have much outdoor play.
Don`t get to kick through the leaves
having fun, getting dirty knees.
We came home happy and tired.
Today`s children go to bed still wired
from playing on a computer game
their fun just isn`t the same!!

  3. What a lovely collection, Linda! I love dandelions anyway, so this appeals - even without one of my own favourite guest books included along with the other beautiful items!
    Thanks for the feature.
