I'm pretty sure I would get kicked out of my house if I lived in a subdivision where you had to have a weed free lawn. My husband hasn't sprayed the yard yet, and the dandelions seem to have found a new mating ground. Although dandelions are now considered "a weed", as I watched my sons playing in them today, I was swept away by their yellow beauty. How many times as a child did I pick bouquets of dandelions and put them in a mason jar for my mom? It's awesome to watch my boys do the same thing for me. When I hear, "Mom, mom! I picked you some flowers", it warms my heart. Who decided it was a weed anyway? Did you know that it used to be considered a wondrous plant with amazing healing properties? Check out this excerpt from THE TEETH OF THE LION, by Anita Sanchez:
"Dandelions are more nutritious than most of the vegetables in your garden. They were named after lions because their lion-toothed leaves healed so many ailments, great and small: baldness, dandruff, toothache, sores, fevers, rotting gums, weakness, lethargy and depression. Not until the twentieth century was the underlying cause of many of these symptoms realized: vitamin deficiencies. In eras when vitamin pills were unknown, vitamin deficiencies killed millions. In its time, "scurvy" was as dreaded a word as AIDS is today. Data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture reveal how dandelions probably helped alleviate many ailments: They have more vitamin A than spinach, more vitamin C than tomatoes, and are a powerhouse of iron, calcium and potassium. " (Read Anita Sanchez's article here)
......so, until my dandelions meet their unfortunate fate with weed spray, I will enjoy them for all of their wondrous color, beauty, and their ability to bring back the child in me.....
chopping down the dandelions....and yes, I lost the wardrobe battle awhile ago.
I could not have asked for a more wonderful couple to start my wedding season than Logan and Elizabeth! They are so sweet, funny, laid back, and completely in love with each other. Elizabeth was absolutely stunning in her gown (from David's Bridal). I can't wait to go through the rest of their images!
