When a yellow dandelion turns white and fluffy, it just goes with the wind for the seeds in the fluff to plant more dandelions.  I can remember, as a kid, blowing the fluff to the wind and making wishes.

I think that nature is beautiful, sometimes.

A dandelion is just a weed, but it’s just a pretty color and when they are all together in a field, it just looks pretty.  The greens from the leaves are delicious to cook up like spinach.  They call them dandelion greens.

Buttercups grow wild and are pretty also.

Daisies and buttercups look pretty when you see them together.  If you take a walk along a country road, you see a lot of both.

Ladybugs are supposed to be good luck.  So cute to see a ladybug floating along on a dandelion gone to the wind.

I love sunflowers.  Those have to be planted, but the white wildflower is what we used to call Queen Ann’s lace.  You see a lot of Queen Ann’s lace on country roads.

I like blue and white and love the above design for a room.  The rugs are by Claire Murray.  I think that the design was made for a house on Nantucket Island.

Today it is in the 80’s and very humid.  Popsicle weather.  The above combination of strawberry and lime sounds good to me.  I make a smoothie in my blender sometimes with orange juice and frozen strawberries.  It’s really refreshing.

And over and out from me in Vermont.
