It’s true, that old saying – April showers bring May flowers. Just take a look at my front yard lawn.
It boasts an abundance of ‘flowers.’ Oh, I know. They’re really dandelions.
Weeds by definition. But to me, they’ve always been a cheery symbol of spring – those lemony yellow dots copiously spread out among the luscious expanse of green.
I’m enjoying my profusion of May “flowers.” They make me as happy as a sunshine-filled, balmy blue-skied day.
They speak life. And what could be better than that?
“Beautiful as a dandelion-blossom golden in the green grass, this life can be.” ~ Edna St. Vincent Millay
