I love spring. Now I know you probably are thinking, "Duh, everyone loves spring." But I contend my passion for spring is deeper than the average "I am glad the cold is over" conessuier. I love spring and everything about it. For example, today, I have been loving dandelions. Everywhere I go there is a new fresh crop.

I know I am suppose to hate them. I have fantasized about keeping a dandelion patch so I can prepare a medival feast complete with a dandelion leaf salad, but I conform to society and murder the plant when it takes root in my yard.

I might not tolerate them in my own grass, but make no mistake; I love dandelions. The bright yellow flower brightens the sea of green. I am enthralled by the tufts of seeds floating on the wind. I love the warm sunshine and cool breezes and the cheerful islands of yellow dotting the perfect neighbor's grass.


  1. Amy, how poetic you are While, the kids and I were hiking on Saturday, there was a small island in the middle of the big creek we had to cross from time to time. We were headed up the hill from the creek and I happened to look down and notice the bright yellow flowers that covered the island. I thought to my self, what a beautiful picture, so I snapped a picture. A short time later, we had to walk on that island to get back across and wouldn't you know it... The pretty flowers were dandelions.
    Just more proof that our Father in Heaven has a sense of humor.

  2. I love spring too. I really miss you guys. If I were still in Utah, we would be hanging out a lot, I guarantee it. You are so easy to talk to and have such good advice. Its nice here, but it honestly gets really lonely sometimes when you live by yourself, and frankly, are heart-broken. Conference weekend with you was such a tender mercy. Love you.
