Welcome to Dandelion Discoveries!
I’m truly so glad you’re here. I hope you’ll stay and enjoy the journey with me.
Why “Dandelion Discoveries?”
Dandelions are one of my favorite flowers.
I know, I know… “They’re not a flower, they’re a weed.” Well they’re a flowering weed, at least give me that!
When I see my first dandelion of the year I break out in a big grin and give a happy sigh (and run over and pick it if possible). Years living in a dandelionless country has only increased my appreciation for them. Just look at them, popping up EVERYWHERE in the Spring, all on their own. And they’re resilient things, aren’t they?! You mow the grass and they grow back, short enough next time to pass under the blade of the mower.
Hillsides painted in brilliant yellow. The first bouquet a child picks for mama. Dandelions.
Wishes made, then a gentle blow. White fluff carried on warm summer breezes. Dandelions.
(Much appreciated, I’m sure, by the neighbors who pay to have such weeds eradicated from their manicured lawns. Oops!)
Dandelion Discoveries is about living life with a perspective that goes against the norm. It’s seeing the beauty of a flower in the nuisance of a weed.
