Another Day, Another Flower – 14

Beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder. There is no doubt about that. But beauty can definitely be found in all things, and in the most unexpected places. With this Flower a Day Challenge, I have been focusing on all kinds of flowers. All of them are beautiful in their own way; all of them are very different.

Weeds are something that most of us complain about because they are a general nuisance and pain in the neck. But they can also be quite beautiful too. Take the sunflower for instance. It is technically considered a weed, though the flowers are gorgeous. I LOVE sunflowers. And did you know dandelions are actually part of the same family as sunflowers? They are, and they too can be quite beautiful as well, if you get beyond the fact that they grow, well, like weeds. 🙂 Today, I am going to show you some of our “beautiful dandelion weeds”.

They just look like beautiful, colorful flowers to me. This bee is quite happy with the dandelion. Even bears love dandelions. When bears come out of hibernation, they look for the dandelions. They are a great nutrient for them and are full of the fat they need after a long winter’s nap. Plus they give them a nice little buzz as well. So see, even weeds have a purpose.

Look for the beauty wherever you can. We all need a more beauty in our lives, even if they come from the most unexpected sources.
