While out for a walk, Sadie and I noticed some tiny yellow flowers scattered in the grass. Sadie and I weren’t sure whether these cute little yellow blossoms were actually wildflowers or weeds, but either way Sadie and I thought they were a nice spot for a rest and some photos. I think this quote from Eeyore of A.A. Milne’s Winnie the Pooh sums up my feelings nicely: “Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them.” It doesn’t matter to me whether botanists would consider them wildflowers or weeds, those little yellow blossoms brought a smile to our faces and showed us some beauty in an unexpected place.
Sadie found some wildflowers during a nice walk in the park. Am I a bad Mom for always laughing when I watch Sadie next to flowers? She tries to sniff them, but she can’t because most flowers are taller than her. The mushrooms were not actually there, just part of the digital effect. I don’t think I’d let her get that close to real mushrooms. They make me nervous since I can’t tell which ones are poisonous. But I liked the whimsical fairy meadow feel they brought to this picture.
So I’ve tried all week to come up with some joyful photos of Sadie for this week’s 52 Snapshots of Life Challenge. She looked kinda happy when I gave her a treat. She looked more relieved than happy when I came home from the store. She looked temporarily happy when I gave her a new toy. But only one thing makes her face light up with pure joy – catching one of her little squeaky balls. Sorry if I sound like a broken record, always talking about her obsession with this toy, but I just want to give an honest idea of life here with Sadie. And in all honesty, playing catch and taking photos of Sadie everyday brings more joy to both our lives than anything else.
