Today I am Grateful for Dandelions

The way Ellie lights up at the sight of a Dandelion growing in our lawn is something I never get tired of. They may be weeds, but for my 3 year old they’re fun, magic and beautiful. After feeling sick all day and wanting to do nothing more than sleep, even when I couldn’t, going outside to sit with the sun warming my back and watch Ellie’s joy at having not one but three Dandelion’s to wish on gave the day a much brighter outlook.

  1. Oh i love dandelions!

  2. It's official, kids love blowing these babies! And I try not to be obsessed with trying to get rid of weeds out of our garden as a result. Me a control freak? Never!

  4. I used to love them too – tomorrow i'm going to try and find one and show the kids 🙂

  5. same in our house, we blow on them and make wishes…

  6. My girls have a book where fairies use the little pieces of dandelion to float around on(like Mary Poppins and her umbrella!)…so they love to blow on them and give the fairies a ride. Wheeeeee… 🙂

  7. Oooh so lovely!!
    We have non stop rain for the past couple of weeks so our backyard was an overgrown jungle {until yesterday when Hubby finally got a chance to mow it} so it was filled with hundreds of dandelions!! My little girl also loves them & we had lots of fun rolling around in them {and getting itchy lol} & making plenty of fairy wishes with them!!
    I love your photo!!
    Hope you feel better soon!!!

  8. My little Miss 4 loves them too, so much joy from a weed – so simple and lovely 🙂

  9. That is an amazing photo, I really love it.

  10. It's beautiful that our little ones light up at something so simple and lovely.

  11. It's the little things that light us up. Sometime I would like to plant a massive display of the humble dandelion to show that they're not always a dreaded weed.

    Thanks for linking, Becky. x

  12. you for reminding me of that simple beauty and the appreciation of it.
