The First Dandelion and Some Friends

(Enlarge for best viewing)
This past week the first dandelion showed up on the warm side of the house. I didn't know until Iuploaded the photos that even if I wasn't overjoyed to see this bright spot of yellow some little winged buddies were feeling very mellow about its appearance!

I'd like to thank all of those who stopped by and left comments and condolences about the passing of my sister-in-law. My husband and I both thank you for your thoughts and compassion during our time of grief. It's wonderful to have such a warm 'family' of such caring friends. Many Blessings to you all!

Wow! The celebration of a dandelion. Such fun, kid-friendly flowers.

I'm sorry to hear about your sister-in-law.

Dandelions are the roses of my childhood! My first favorite flower, they still make me smile.

Dandelions are called weeds but I think they are beautiful yellow flowers. That can pop in multiple different places. Without having to be planted there by a human being.

Must be spring !!!!

I like the name "dandelion". In Swedish the same flower has a much more "down-to-earth-and-don't-forget-that-you-are-a-weed" name (maskros = "worm-rose")

I dandelion is a sign of life. It survives in a world that doesn't like it and doesn't want it. It goes on despite horrible odds against it. It even , if you look and you did , brings a littly beauty into the world.

Lola said...

I posted dandelions in my entry too. I read in you message about your loss, I'm sorry. Ciao

I saw plenty of them in TN so I've seen all I want to see. :)

They're quite an intricate flower aren't they - love seeing their cheery faces in spring. Great photo.

Our yard is slowing getting covered with the pretty little flowers. Good photo.

Dandelions hold their own beauty, even if some people dislike them on their lawn.

Beautiful photo.

Thoughts and prayers to you and your family.
