CHANGE

How do you capture "Change"? This was a bit tough for me, and then as I've been out planting my garden all day I thot of how the plants change - they start as a tiny little seed and sprout and grow and blossom and turn into something delicious and beautiful. BUT since it is too soon for any of those pictures, and after taking many pictures of the budding flowers on the apple tree, my mind went a bit different direction.

I apologize for the UGLY picture of CHANGE that follows.


Changing, dying dandelions.

This picture perfectly shows the change that is taking place in our yard. When we moved here 4 years ago, there were lots of dandelions. And since then there have become LOTS more dandelions. This year I decided is the year to CHANGE that. My hubby and I each tackled about half the lawn and sprayed them all. And we will spray again. And again. And again if needed to get rid of them!

And as you can see from this picture, they are definitely CHANGING. I liked how in this picture you can see a yellow dandelion "flower," the white seeded ones, the shriveling up of the weed as a whole and the brown, changing, dying stems.

Lisa, this isn't an ugly picture at all... I LOVE the looks of a dying weed... pesky things! And just look at all that lush green grass... ahhhh, to go barefoot on that lawn, heaven! GREAT idea, this is definitely a good CHANGE!
