Stop for a moment and...
...look at the flowers.

When I was a kid, I used to like to lie down in long grass and pretend it was a jungle. Sadly, at my age, it's harder to do for fear that the neighbours will rush over thinking I've collapsed! However, a camera can sort of achieve the same impression.

At Christmas I like to lay in the grass and look at my lights. Once a neighbor did stop to check on me.

I knew I was right to worry. :)

And even when I think I'm in the middle of nowhere and no one will see, a couple of hikers always come striding by and give me strange looks.

When I have to head them before they fly all over the place I have kind of lost my appetite for dandelions on the lawn!

LOL! The same could be said of me, if it's any consolation.

Whenever I see dandelion clocks I'm reminded that for years I've thought, 'The Dandelion Clocks' would be a great name for a story. No idea what it would be about...

Having fallen over in the street which meant dealing with kind/embarrassing assistance that made me feel about 100 years old, I'm unlikely to deliberately lie down anywhere. ;)

Can't you put a little sign up: "Entering second childhood - do not disturb"? ;-)
