At Rain’s Garden, the theme for Thursday’s art date is “What do you see”.
I spotted this perfect Dandelion seed flower yesterday and was still thinking about it today. I was hoping I could find it again this morning, and sure enough I did. I started to compose a poem in my head about it and completed it this afternoon. I made an art journal page also in tribute to the wildflowers and will add it at Art Journal Journey for it’s green march theme.
Some see you and get angry, I see you and smile.
Some douse you with chemicals, or shred you with blades.
You’ve survived, standing tall among those who’ve lost the battle.
You’ve lived through wind and rain and grown strong against all odds.
My hope is that a small child will find you and smile with delight.
That you will be scooped up
and feel a warm loving breath upon you,
Being scattered around new places to grow and be admired again.Karen Maszewski 3-5-2020
This is my daughter Sarah back in her preschool days. We love to find wildflowers and found this amazing patch of yellow blooms to stop and take a picture in.
Roasted Dandelion Root Tea
Stimulates the liver and supports healthy digestion.*
Pleasantly roasted with bitter notes.
Some think of dandelion as a common weed, but our herbalists know that its bitter taste stimulates digestion and supports your body’s natural detoxification process.* Some of our finest dandelion comes from the sustainably wild-collected meadows of Eastern Europe. It’s the perfect tea for everyday wellness!
I thought adding this tea info was fitting. I’ve tried it and think it’s a little earthy for me but the dandelion is said to have a lot of health benefits. any thoughts on that? Thanks for Sharing my visuals today!
