DANDELIONS & TULIPS, Spring Photo Ideas for the Family

 
 
Dandelions are a gardener's nightmare
when in full bloom.
An evil pesky weed invader that destroys your beautiful lawn.
But wait,
this evil invader is actually quite nutritious.
It is a rich source for Vitamin A, B complex, C, D and mineral such a potassium,
iron and zinc. 
It is also use as an Herbal Remedy.
 
I also found another use Dandelions.
Back in 2009,
the family and I went on an early morning grocery shopping to fill our icebox,
we arrived in Michigan the night before, we just moved from Los Angeles.
 
Leaving the grocery store,
I spotted this hill next to the parking lot covered with vibrant yellow flowers.
Ding ... ding ... ding!!!
Light bulb moment!
Photo stop!
Hubby parked the car closer to the hill,
the kids and I got out and I had them sit and took the beautiful shot.
 
Two years later,
after our Mother's Day Lunch at Shiro's
we passed another field, covered with Dandelions.
We parked, had the kids sit and run around the field, and took photos.
From then on,
I decided that this is what we will do every 2 years.
It's so amazing to watch the changes.
 
Oh Boy, they do grow up fast!
 
I'm just hoping my daughter will let me do this in the years to come.

At the request of my daughter her beautiful face has been blurred out.



Here's another idea we did this year, that we did back in 2009.
We visited Holland for Mother's Day, 
Tulips were in full bloom.
Who could not resist taking pictures of this field full of colorful tulips?

This photo of my husband and I was taken by my daughter. She's got skills!




 
 
NO TULIP WAS HURT AS A RESULT OF THIS PHOTO SESSION,
 I CAN'T SAY THE SAME FOR THE DANDELIONS.
