Young John called me outside this morning, excited to show me the beautiful flower we had growing in the side flower bed...first signs of spring. Oi. Looks like work to me.
Truly, beauty is in the eye of the beholder!
Upon further investigation though, we also found a couple daphodils, some Iris plants peeking up out of the ground, Clematic vines budding, rose branches greening up, and several other early signs of nature's beauty. What a lovely day!

My son also sees them as a thing of beauty. When we first built our house and hadn't planted the grass yet, we had lots of those little beauties. Our neighbor keeps an immaculate yard, free of dandelions. My son said "Poor Don, he doesn't have any of those pretty yellow flowers!" Cracked us up! I took a picture of my son, handing a fistful of dandelions to me. Those are the moments we want to freeze in time, aren't they? Love the dandelions when they come with love from a child!
