The first flowers of spring - Day 68

Yep, yesterday was the first day that one of my daughters brought me a dandelion! So it's official - spring MUST be here (and you can just ignore the snow that we got a couple of days ago - it must be irrelevant!) I know dandelions are not the most exciting flowers, but to me, they are what hints that spring is here! And who can't admire a flower that keeps reappearing, despite all attempts to eradicate it? Even when we mow our lawn, it usually isn't even an entire day before they are all back, maybe even multiplied!

I got this cute vase from my Mother-in-law almost 9 years ago as a baby shower gift - especially sized for holding "dandelion" bouquets. One of the best gifts ever! It has held so many precious flower offerings from my daughters, and I know it will hold many more!

“The miracles of nature do not seem miracles because they are so common. If no one had ever seen a flower, even a dandelion would be the most startling event in the world.”   Unknown
