~ A Moment Captured ~





Whilst visiting Craggy Range Winery in Hawkes Bay last week my daughter wanted to go for a walk through the vineyard grounds [in the freezing cold]. I am not usually one to say no to a child who wants to play. Luckily for me I grabbed my camera at the last second. I captured her picking these humble dandelion flowers. "These are for you mum" she said afterward.
winner of my Coastal Living Giveaway chosen by random.org is #13 Bubbachenille. Congrats!

  28. Oh, I remember picking dandelions as a little girl. Reminds me of innocence. As we grow up we realize they are weeds. To a child, they are mere flowers!
