In between the pages of a rather heavy old book, A Treasury of Masterpieces by Charles Dickens no less, my young boy has gently tucked two tiny treasures he found recently on a rambling walk around our neighbourhood.
My boy's treasure!
Crouching down at every opportunity, he carefully examined clumps of bee-friendly clover hoping to find one with four leaves just like the lucky ones he had read about. You can imagine his excitement and joy upon finding these! Carefully counting and counting again (to double check) he has proudly proclaimed these as four-leaf clovers and himself as lucky.
It was a lovely way to spend a beautiful, warm Autumn morning with my boy. Among swathes of clover with a blue sky above, a happy dog for company, the odd bee or two (probably wondering what on Earth we were doing) and all the time in the world to spend with each other. Magical ... indeed!
