Weeds or wishes?



















There are many people who dislike the lowly Dandelion. Children love them, but many adults hastily mow them down. Why is that? I don't have an answer.

I see them and think, "Oh look, the childrens' flower has arrived." 

There's one left and I know Fall is approaching. My little childrens' flower will soon hibernate. I have one last wish I can make. 

Do you see these as weeds or wishes?

If you answer, 'a wish,' then what would you wish for on the last flower?

  2. isn't dandelion the same as arugula that people eat in their salads? :) And I know that milk from dandelion can erase warts on your hands if you have them

    1. I think you're right, Dezzy. A friend of mine makes Dandelion tea too.

  3. I see it as a wish. I guess I'd wish for improvement with my migraines. I'm still struggling and am not where I'd like to be in that department...

    1. Robin - I will continue praying for you, knowing that when you're ready, you will tell the migraines it's time to leave. Maybe that sounds strange but it can be done. Sit and imagine Yeshua's warm palm on the top of your head.

      Your blogs, right now, which show self-validation are the strongest source to your advantage. (smile).

  4. Not a weed or a wish, but a salad. Well, I guess it could be a wish if you were wishing for a salad and got some dandelions.

    Every year it seems like we get about one lone dandelion in our yard. I like to see it and it doesn't turn into a problem for us. The dandelion is just one more amazing creation of God.

    1. Lee, I love the way you think! (smile). Salads are wonderful!
      I want to plant a flower bed of them next spring.

  5. It just occurred to me that I haven't seen a dandelion since I moved to Florida. I wonder why we don't have dandelions. Let's say I can make a wish. My wish is for love, love, love. Love for everyone. Even the pissy people.

    Love,
    Janie

  9. I remember dandelions from kid days, blowing on the white fluff after a wish, then curling the other end of the stem in your mouth and turning the stem into a whistle.

    1. Elizabeth! I didn't know you could make a whistle from the stem. Wow!

  13. Nah, you have to have a buttercup to test for liking butter. However, I love to see dandelions flowering amongst all the green. What better sight could you get than all that green and gold. Beautiful. I like Debra's wish.

  14. Wishes baby!! Dandelions are one of my favorite flowers. It's awesome on so many levels. It's a survivor with understated beauty, and if you're desperate, you can eat them. Beautiful, whimsical, digestible. What's not to love?
