Dandelion (Taraxacum)

A thunderstorm to awaken to this morning. Americans spend millions to eradicate this wildflower from their lawns and properties. They are valued as much as any of my other wildflowers here at Rauhallinen Farm. Their appearance in the lawns marks the true beginning of Spring here.

Whenever I feel that trust is an issue in my life, I simply walk out to feed my birds and let the Chickadees land on my shoulder and my Rose Breasted Grosbeck feed inches away. I then remind myself that it is really OK....I wish you the same.

“Love is wild; its whole beauty is in its wildness. It comes like a breeze with great fragrance, fills your heart, and suddenly where there was a desert there is a garden full of flowers.” 
― Osho

and I still love you deeply...
