I still have to look through the flower beds and the wilder areas of our land in search of flowers. The tulips aren't quite ready and irises and other perennials are going all out towards meeting their bloom time deadlines. I know where there are wildflowers but they too aren't ready for showtime yet.
But there under the bottom step of the deck amongst the grass was a simple dandelion, at least I thought it was a dandelion and I thought it was simple, until I downloaded it and looked at it on the computer screen. Now I've never seen a dandelion that looks like this one! And I'm not even sure anymore if it is a dandelion. Looking at it closely reminded me of what we were told long ago: "... why do you worry about clothes? See how the dandelions of the field grow. They do not labour or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendour was dressed like one of these."
Simple flower, simple words, profound message. (the text referenced lilies but I think works equally well for dandelions)
