Starting out

A strange time that has given me some time. Time to refocus after ten years of hectic motherhood.

The dandelions were out in full bloom in Pikestane field, it seems like only last week their yellow sunshine faces were bobbling about in the wind. For the first year ever we picked them and tried to make dandelion syrup. A very labour intensive process- but you do end up with a very runny honey! Now they are fluff, already it seems everything has moved on a stage. And I am not sure we are ready in my bubble. Not ready at all to move to the next stage.
