Before my concussion, I had lots and lots of summer goals. After the concussion, I drastically narrowed my goals. One of the main ones was to talk a walk in the meadow in June. It HAD to be when very specific flowers were blooming: clover, alfalfa, daisies, false baby’s breath, and buttercups. These are the flowers of my childhood; the flowers that made me love flowers.

Of course, the best way to do it would be while wearing an antique Edwardian dress!

My friend and I took turns documenting by taking photos of each other. She gets all of the photo credit for these.

The design on the front of the dress was painstakingly hand-sewn.

 

At the edge of one of the fields was a forest.

All of the sudden I realized I had forgot to check for poison ivy and I was standing in a patch of it. The horrors!

I had to take a large jump to get out of it without walking through more.

I can’t wait to take another walk like this!
