A DANDELION

"It gives one a sudden
start in going down a
barren, stony street, to
see upon a narrow strip
of grass, just within the
iron fence, the radiant
dandelion, shining in the
grass, like a spark dropped
from the sky."

~ Henry Ward Beecher


I hope everyone discovers their spark
today and has a Thursday radiating with
beauty.xx

  6. Thank you, Tracey. What a beautiful way to start my day. I love that photo, the vivid yellow is so uplifting.

    I still can't leave a comment through my google account. Stacy from golden bird. I am having this problem on some blogs while others seem to work fine. Very strange.

  10. Spark dropped from the sky...very nice imagery. I like dandelions and don't know why they get such a 'bad rap'. You can make dandelion fritters, wine, eat the leaves, use them in your science lesson, dye with them...
