One man's weed...

Spring is finally here in Maine!

I remember walking through dandelions when I was a child and it seemed like they were hip height. And they probably were. I was under 5 at the time and my dad worked away and could only mow the lawn on weekends. So the dandelions got really long one time. And when he mowed them down I cried.

I know many people hate these flowers. People who want a grassy lawn have companies come to spray to get rid of them. But I love this flower. There is nothing like a hillside blooming with dandelions. When I think of them, it makes me think of Jesus saying, "Consider the lilies of the field...."

I love dandelions to. I have fond childhood memories of them as well. This post brought a big smile to my face especially as it is snowing today May 6th. Come dandelions come!
