Do you remember blowing wishes?

Wishing

There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colors are brighter,
the air softer, and the morning more fragrant than ever again.

Oh, yes... I blew a few hundred of those when I was a child... and occasionally still do now.

Thank you, Kate.

Absolutely! And also catching fireflies, listening to the spring peepers and putting buttercups under our chins... thanks for the sweet memories! :)

Yes, I remember, too. And, "he loves me, he loves me not...". My sisters and I took that quite seriously.

Beautiful quote!

I get to re-live it with my daughters-- they love these things! We went on a walk the other day looking for these specifically.
