Dandy Dandelion - A Study in Beauty

“Matter is spirit moving slowly enough to be seen.”
― Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

"I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for. "
- Georgie O'Keeffe

"I'm afraid that if you look at a thing long enough, it loses all of its meaning." - Andy Warhol

"Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time." 
- Thomas Merton

“If we were not so single-minded
about keeping our lives moving
and for once could do nothing,
perhaps a huge silence
might interrupt this sadness
of never understanding ourselves
and of threatening ourselves with death
Perhaps the world can teach us
as when everything seems dead
but later proves to be alive.”

- Pablo Neruda

Make a wish!

This wonderful wildflower is not only a beauty but is also edible and one of the first nectar sources for bees.
Do you have these beauties in your yard?
