Simplicity by Kirsten Bruening

Dandelions are special and we may not even know it, or sometimes notice. But these vibrant, compact profusions of seeds can look like tiny galaxies. The may seem plain, or gardeners might give them a bad name as weeds, but the many seedlets, also known as “florets,” are like the numerous stars in a distant nebula…That is, until a strong gust comes along or you blow them gently so they carry into the wind, and then this floral display of dandelions gets dispersed and may pop up elsewhere, for someone else to find and appreciate…it is the pure simplicity we should enjoy.
