Have you really looked?


This post is from last May. I saw my first dandelions of the season and thought of what I wrote last year.

Have you ever really looked at a dandelion?
Click to enlarge this pic
and REALLY look at it.

They are beautiful!
We have been told they are not
They are a weed
and We believed them.

It wasn't until I set this pic as my
Wallpaper/background
that I realized they were wrong.

What else have they told us
That we believed
Without forming our own opinion....

They might be wrong...

I have made my peace with them. At least sort of. I do still pull them out of the beds, but I leave them alone in the turf.

YOU ARE SO RIGHT ON THIS JULES... WE SHOULD NEVER BLINDLY ACCEPT THINGS THAT PEOPLE TELL US AND THAT PIC IS BEAUTIFUL!

As a little girl, I saw the Ouray Elk's Lodge lawn covered in glowing dandies. I exclaimed, "Oh, how beautiful!" I looked up at my mom for agreement and was surprised to see the look of bewilderment on her face. To her credit, she didn't disagree with me, just gave me the look. You know the one, ok...if you say so!

Oh, good insite. I believe way to much of what I am told and never really learn for myself.
