what are you looking for?

What we see depends mainly on what we look for.  -John Luubbock

So what do you see in this picture?

I see “flowers”…  Little mounds of fluffy, sunshine yellow flowers.  OK – Dandelions definitely have their own little thing going on – but I like that about them.  If they were sold in the garden center, I’m  betting you would (gulp!) buy them.  Yep.  I’m saying that you would pay money for a dandelion “flower”.  But you never will.  These little “flowers” are free spirits.  Wildflowers.  They are the happiest color in the world because, no matter what, they are true survivors.   Try as you may, you cannot crush the spirit of a dandelion. There are real lessons to be learned here – so if you’re having a bad day, I suggest you go find yourself a field of “wildflowers”… and soak in a bit of sunshine!

From the mouth of babes; well said, Hannah!  I’m going with “sunshine yellow”.          Live happy…

  1. I love yellow also…so this is perfect. And, Hanna’s statement rocks. My room is made up of Purples and yellows, all different shades of both. And, it may sound strange but my main back is Barn Red, Grey, and Bright Yellow. I don’t have one set shade of China or Stoneware. I have 16 different colors of Fiesta Ware. And, getting ready to buy the last 4 shades that came out. I by no means need 20 place settings but, you never know if the girls ever have families large enough for those big Thanksgiving dinners, we will have what we need. And, yes I have butter dishes, sugar and creamer sets in different colors..only 2. Salt and pepper shakers, serving dishes and bowls, pitchers, everything you need. I love color, the more color the better…..
