My first dandelion bouquet...

You can keep your long-stemmed roses... I just received my first dandelion bouquet. It was delivered by a chubby, grubby hand, complete with a personalized message ("Here mommy. These flowers for you."). They got a little squished- Abbie insisted that I carry them in my pocket (so I wouldn't "lose dem"). As if it weren't obvious, LOL, I love dandelions. One of my favorite flowers, because Nature gives them to us so freely. I just don't understand why or how people are willing to spend tons of money to dump chemicals all over their lawns just to get rid of dandelions. What is more cheerful than little orbs of sunshine dotting your yard? A simple reminder of the simple pleasures.

I agree completely. I'm going to miss the day when Hayden no longer brings me my dandelion bouquet, he's growing up so fast. I'm glad you can enjoy those sweet moments with your little ones.

I love daisies and butter cups myself :0) and a little tiny purple flower but I am not sure what it's called. No chemicals for me, I am petrified of em!
