Monochrome Dandelions

mondaymono_08june20

If you see a dandelion as a weed, you’ll spray it. If you see it as a flower, you’ll draw it close, turn it this way and that, and become lost in the colossal burst of slender golden petals that spew sunshine into the darkest of souls. And so, how many things have we sprayed that could have illuminated our souls if we would have let them be more than what we let them be? ~ Craig D. Lounsbrough

  1. I used to carefully relocate the dandelions years ago while gardening. I never sprayed at them or any other weeds for removing them – primarily because they were harmful to the useful plants we used to grow in our garden. Of course all bets went off if bugs attacked the plants.
    I love plants, trees, flowers and forests. Don’t mind the weed as long as it isn’t parasitic, poisonous and green.
    This is a beautiful picture Madam.. 🙂 🙂 Thank you for sharing..!!

  2. Wow – that looks so beautiful in black and white.

    …”And if y you see a dandelion as greens you’ll eat it, and if you see it as a drink you’ll roast the root and drink it, or pluck the flowers and turn them in to wine – depending on your preference. 😀

    I’ve always felt more like a weed than a flower. And dandelions are a favorite of mine. 🙂
