Pic of the Week: Call It A Weed, I Call It A Flower


Spring seems so far off. While I do love snow so very much, about this time every year, I start to crave warmer weather. I'm ready to enjoy the outdoors again, especially beautiful flowers. Most people don't think of dandelions when they think of their favorite blooms, but I adore this little weed. Growing up, this flower was known to me as a "wishing flower". Our lawn was covered in them, and my mother always told me that if I made a wish and could blow all the little seeds off in one breath, my wish would come true. I think that is how she got some quiet mommy time, because I could spend the whole afternoon running around the yard, trying to make my wishes come true.
