I decided to change the name of my blog. This time of the year is always full of beautiful dandelions. We LOVE them! They are so beautiful, especially when you see a field full of their yellow faces. They make lovely jewelry. They are yummy to eat. And, I use them as an indicator. If they are present in abundance, I can tell that no chemicals have been applied to someone's yard that we are visiting or to a local park's grassy areas.
Last week, we visited our local park and there were thousands and thousands of dandelions. We had a ball picking them, making bouquets and jewelry, and even finding fairies on them. Anyways, I was so happy to spend our lovely morning in the company of these wild flowers, that we decided to visit the township office and thank them for not putting down anything to kill the dandelions. The woman who heard our "thank you" replied that they never had so many dandelions and they were contemplating what to do about them. I quickly replied that the mamas are happy to see them and the children are all loving them....PLEASE leave them alone! :) (If they decide to do otherwise, they will find a lot of mamas organized by me at their township building ready for a dandelion fight!):)
So, I've decided to change my blog name to reflect our love, passionate LOVE, of our favorite wild flower....the dandelion. I hope that my family can remain as wild and free as the beautiful dandelion!
