Isaiah and my Favorite Flower

Since Isaiah has been a little itty bitty boy he has mistaken my favorite flower, Sunflowers, for the yellow weed flower Dandelions.

I don't have the heart to tell him otherwise.

It's easy to see how he could get the two confused.

And this brings me to the question. Who is it that ever said that Dandelions should be a weed flower anyways?

I mean, I think Isaiah is on to something here. Why do we pull up, and then throw away these bright lil yellow flowers every year? Just because some guy somewhere who wanted his grass to be perfect with no spots of sunny yellow, said that they were a weed?

Maybe that guy just didn't like the color yellow on his green grass. Maybe he was a scrooge about the Spring season and was like "Bah-hum-bug" to all the new flowers popping up everywhere.

Well, I'm not listening to that guy who says Dandelions are a weed flower.


I think I am going to listen to this guy and embrace the Dandelions this year.

Another reason dandelions should not be considered weeds - they're actually pretty tasty. :)

Wow, really? Have you tried them Jeni? Also, I just finished the last Hunger Games book; Mocking Jay and there is a beautiful tribute to dandelions on the very last page. I wish I had read it before this post.

mmm there is a bar in Vegas that serves up a delish dandelion and steak sammie. Slurp. My neighbor just taught us that you can use dandelions to color with. Just hold them yellow side down and use them like a paint brush. We decorated the whole drive way!

wow shontell that sounds interesting. a steak with dandelion? hmm....
we used to have that game when we were kids if you took a dandelion and scrapped it up under your chin and if it left a yellow mark you were wimp. or something like that.
