Unexpected Beauty

Jadyn was so excited about the dandelions at her preschool on Tuesday. There were a lot of them growing near our car and so she took time to pick some. I saw it as a photo opportunity, of course. Oh, to be young again and see the dandelions as beautiful, wonderful flowers. ☺


Here's a photo of Jadyn picking dandelions in the spring, last year. Look how much she's changed in just one year. My baby is growing up!

Have a wonderful Friday! Don't forget to see the beauty in the little things. ☺

She HAS changed so much! And the Tongginator loves, loves, loves dandelions, too. I guess that's true of most young gals. We've had many hard lessons about picking "flowers" in the grass (yes) versus picking flowers from the beds (no).

Adorable! And great photos. :)

Reminds me of an old song:
"She sees love where
Anyone else would see weeds
All hope is found
Here is everything she needs
...
Lord, search my heart
create in me something clean
Dandelions
You see flowers in these weeds"

It's so sweet to see Jadyn enjoying the dandy's! Our girlie gets so excited to pick a handful of this special blooms for holding in the car when we are leaving home.
Have a great weekend! We are finally planting Anna's little veggie garden. Flowers after church!:)

Just Beautiful! If we could all see the beauty in dandelions, wouldn't the world be a better place :) Thanks for sharing.
