Dandelions.  They are here; they are there; they are everywhere.  And they offer a delightful opportunity for reflection about life.  Their bright yellow dandelion flowers pop out of tall green grass.  Often regarded as unwanted additions to lawns and gardens, two questions rise: are dandelions, weeds?  are dandelions, flowers?

I like to think of dandelions as unloved flowers: bringing nourishment to our bodies in salads; encouraging our sense of beauty and playfulness when created into Dandelion Tiaras such as the ones in the photo that a friend and I made.

Perspective.  Maybe it’s all about perspective?  And not just perspective about dandelions … but perspective about all of life?
