When gardeners have dandelions in our gardens or lawns we cuss and groan. Those blasted yellow flowers are like a sword in our sides, but when a child brings us a bouquet of those pesky little flowers, they are suddenly the most beautiful things in the world? How many dandelion bouquets can one mom have? LOL!

So sweet! You know, they do add a little sunshine in the house. I guess they (dandelions) can't be all that bad! LOL!!

LOL There's a great song about dandelions by Five Iron Frenzy. It talks about how the love of a parent makes common weeds into a beautiful bouquet. You can read the full lyrics here: http://www.christianrocklyrics.com/fiveironfrenzy/dandelions.php

A mom can never have too many. My children were upset this weekend when their dad was outside killing those pretty yellow flowers. I tried to explain to the children that they are really weeds but to them they are pretty flowers that shouldn't be killed.

Shame on that Daddy!!! LOL! We don't have too many in our yard, the kids always pick (with permission, of course) from the neighbor's yards. My youngest absolutely LOVES when we walk up to the post office because they have a whole field of them there!!

My daughter picking dandelions - We walked up to the post office to find a very lovely field of dandelions. Here's my youngest picking them to her hearts content!
how cute is that!:) On the farm I grew up on, it was more work than ever to get rid of the buggers. I loved the fields of yellow in the yard! LOL! My girls like to pick them for me,and now, I've convinced them to pick and give them to the neighbors. I'm sure they all love me for it! :)

I have just terrible allergies but no matter how much my eyes water those beautiful dandelions are in a little glass on the table for all to see. The worst ones my girlie picks are those purple ones they make want to cry but I give them a big sniff and say thank you anyway. I like you treasure those little things in life because someday when she is grown I will still remember my lion bouquets.

What a great mom you are, to do that even with your allergies. Your little ones will remember those moments as much as you will! :)
