Oh Beautiful Dandelion Puff



"A weed is just a plant whose virtues

have not yet been discovered."

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

The Dandelion Puff is my daughter's favorite "flower."

She so lovingly collected these three.

They looked so pretty I just had to take pictures and share.

This is true beauty through the eyes of a child.

I am truly blessed and thankful for such a wonderful daughter who reminds me to slow down, take in the beauty of all of God's creations and to "Blow the Dandelion Puffs". I love you Briana!

Thank you for stopping by for a visit. I invite you to come back tomorrow... I'll be sharing a little something sweet with you all. See you then. Blessings to all.

Hugs and Kisses,

So beautiful, Ana!

Honey, your blog button is only showing up as a photobucket icon. I tried the new blog button and it does the same thing. Did you know this?

It was my favorite "flower" too. Beautiful in it's own way...a survivor!

I mean...it's stayed strong when everyone tries to kill it or pull it up from it's roots.

Amazing when you think about it. I think the D-lion looks lovely under glass...

Love to you~

Rebecca

How very sweet! Briana must have handled those with a lot of care to get them inside as keepers. Dandelion puffs certainly bring back a lot of fond memories of childhood. :) Blessings, Tammy

Mary said...

Ana, what a delight daughter you have! If we would see things as she does, life would be sweeter! I remember how much I loved to pick those "puffs" and blow at them...simple joys of childhoos!

God bless,

Hi Ana,

What a lovely post and sometimes it takes our daughter or someone else to show us these simple yet wonderful things.
I love your dandelion puffs.
