Bless the BIRDS & the WEEDS....

~~ ~~ ~~ Northern male Cardinal ~~ ~~ ~~

~Bless the flowers and the weeds,
my birds and bees.

~ Spring would not be spring
without bird songs.
~Francis M. Chapman

~Spring would not be spring
without dandelions!
~Cat :D

~ "I was always a lover of
soft~winged things."
~Victor Hugo

~~~ ~~~ The Dandelion ~WEED ~~~ ~~~

~You fight dandelions all weekend,
and late Monday afternoon there
they are , pert as all get out,
in full and gorgeous bloom,
pretty as can be, thriving as only
dandelions can in face of adversity.
~Hal Borland

~ A weed is but an unloved flower.
~Ella Wilcox 1855-1919

Weeds are flowers too,
once you get to know them.
~Eeyore from Winnie The Pooh
A.A. Milne

So, bless the BIRDS & the WEEDS! :D
Have a great week!!

Dandelion is indeed a nice weed. The meadow of our farmer neighbour is full of these plants end of April/beginning of May. Then it looks if a million stars had fallen to the ground. Just beautiful!
Have a good time,

Dear Cat,
"Bless the weeds" is right! Great food for the bees. I thank goodness for all of the pretty wildflowers. The dandies and the henbit are just a few in my yard!
I love them all!

Cat, I love your posts. You put everything into such a positive perspective, even the weeds:). I love a field full of dandelions glowing in the sun.
