Eye Candy Friday


I shared this photo on instagram and Facebook the other day and I said, alas, the first dandelion of the season is not greeted with the same enthusiasm as the first crocus. Womp womp. However, I was reminded that dandelions are food for bees and therefore quite valuable. And you know, they are bright and cheerful. In other words, as my mother-in-law used to say: who decreed a weed a weed.

It’s Easter weekend. I’ll be busy prepping and cooking in order to host dinner for 10 on Sunday. I couldn’t be happier about it. I hope you’re happy with whatever your weekend has in store!

    I can’t help but appreciate that lovely bright yellow, whether it’s a daffodil or dandelion. They are food for my sil in addition to bees; she always makes a dandelion green salad and/or quiche to celebrate spring. I hope you have a delicious dinner and a very Happy Easter!

    Hurray for dandelions! (I am always my neighborhood WINNER in the dandelion department. . . ) (Another bonus — you can make a wish.) Happy Easter, Carole. Enjoy every moment of the weekend.

    I love dandilions because they remind of my kids picking bouquets of them for me when they were little and it’s true that the bees need them. Happy Easter!

    A botanist that I work with me told me that in the botany world, a weed is defined only as a plant that shows up where you didn’t want it to show up …

    Yeah, who did declare a weed a weed? The photo and the philosophy are day brighteners. Have a bright and happy Easter.

    So many lawns no longer have the perky yellow flowers. They remind me of childhood and using a special tool to work them out of the ground with the root intact. I made bouquets and flower rings of the cheery blossoms.

    There’s always ‘Mommy had a baby and it’s head popped off’ hehehe we used to do with dandelions! Or hold one under your sister’s chin to see if she likes butter. Have a fine Easter >:+

    I think, “May all your weeds be wildflowers!” There is nothing quite so happy as a field full of flowers — if they happen to be dandelions, so be it!! 😉
