UNEXPECTED BEAUTY I probably shot this little fellow 20 times today from 20 different angles.  Of all of them, this one unexpectedly turned out to be my favorite–and to think, I almost deleted it because initially, I wasn’t impressed.  I’m still amazed at how often we find beauty in the most unexpected places.

Of course, I had to add it to my Nature’s Finest collection :).

From my heart ❤ to yours <3!

DANDELION (YELLOW)How do you feel about dandelions?  Most people hate them because they are those pesky weeds that just won’t go away!  Yet, I actually consider them to be beautiful in appearance, and it is said that these herbs can also contribute to our health and diet.

I also find the dandelion fluff pleasing to my eyes.  They resemble little, tiny parachutes floating throughout the earth’s atmosphere.  When I was a little girl, I would pick the plants and release my breath onto them until all their little, fluffy, white thistles had been released into the sky.

It is just so amazing to me how even the simplest of things that our Creator gave us can bring such a wealth of joy and inspiration to our lives.  He’s pretty awesome, don’t you think?  (Psalm 96:4)

DANDELION FLUFFAnd I hope you have an awesome day!  As always, this is from my heart to yours.
