some see a weed ...


i see dots of sunshine ...


and nature's way of mending the earth ...

lovely friends of ours who are exemplary stewards of the earth
explained to me one day that the dandelion serves as a protector
of the earth ~ growing where nothing else does, offering roots
for worms to live about ~ building the soil to it's natural state ...

the most part that stuck in my mind is ...
'soil isn't meant to be bare'

i think god put a dandy flower to lie right there ... :)

thanks, kim for the 'distress' texture (1.)
and the 'earthy vignette' texture (3.) from your collection!

gorgeous and what a wonderful statement/testament to the purpose and validity of the little dandelion. perspective is oh so important.

I've always adored dandelions and love their seedpods. Now I have an excuse besides Dandelion Wine (which I never figured out what to use - flowers?)
