Golden Kisses

“You cannot forget if you would those golden kisses

all over the cheeks of the meadow, queerly called dandelions.”

  1. Weren’t you tempted to hand off your camera to someone so you could do your own version of the opening scene of The Sound of Music….

    LOL, yes it was tempting! :-)

  2. Such a beautiful scene … makes me wish I could be there, shoes in hand, just wandering through the masses of flowers. Lovely photo.

  3. Nancy girl .. as long as they are else where ? we can call them kisses ? LOL
    Kingston has huge break outs of them around the city .. we all sort of ignore them and hope they will go away ?
    But that quote .. well that is the best way to look at them I think .. as kids we never thought they were weeds .. just nice yellow flowers .. makes you ponder that whole perception thing eh ? wink wink

  4. What a breathtaking shot, Nancy! I love dandelions in bloom. It’s those horrid stalky seedheads sticking up like some alien fungus that I hate. In my yard, we enjoy the blooms, then feed the plants to the chickens before they go to seed. Love your new blog name and quote!

  5. nancy, That is a nice shot~I love their golden color in the grass and so do the bees. Love your new format! Someone needs to please come help me catch up with the blogging world technology! gail

  6. That’s such a lovely shot, I’m glad I’m not the only one that admires a field full of dandelions. Now you won’t find any in our lawn, I admit it, because hubby is a lawn fanatic. But I do admire them in the wild, unbeknownst to him!

  7. What a fabulous photo! This is the perfect setting for dandelions. Imagine what it looks like when they are all covered in little white puffs of seed heads!

  8. I just love those words. The field is so beautiful. Whoever decided that daffodils and roses were beautiful and dandelions a weed? I’ve never understood the annoyance felt toward these bright and cheerful flowers.
