Even the most unlikely things can be beautiful...

 I forget how busy this time of the year is...
I don't know how I survived this time of year being a working mom. 
It just feels like we are running from one event to the next.

Lots of things to be blogged about....
but haven't had the time to go through photos and get my thoughts together, so I thought I'd do a quick post today of some photos I took of dandelions in the unfinished section of our back yard.  
While Tracy was spraying them with Round-up I was one step ahead of him photographing them.  

Dandelions will forever remind of the sweetness of little kids, who think they are the prettiest flowers ever when they bring you a handful of them to brighten your day!!   

I had one of those moments again this past weekend! 
“The miracles of nature do not seem miracles 
because they are so common. 
If no one had ever seen a flower, 
even a dandelion would be 
the most startling event in the world.”

I was thinking that you had been derelict in your blogging duties. I've missed your posts.
However I understand.

I need to do the roundup thing. I'll try to stop and smell the dandelions before I slay them.

Great pictures! Dandelions are fun, and pretty too, if they aren't in your yard. Or, like me, if you rent and don't have to worry about them!

Your pictures make the dandelions look like a thing of beauty!
It is a busy time of year! I completely understand how the blog can be put on the back burner!

the second-from-the-bottom dandelion shot is my ultimate fave. :D
