Weeds are Beautiful

dandelions and violets

I've been picking the weeds in the yard and putting them in little jars around the house.  They may be called weeds.  But to me, they are beautiful.  Nutritious too!  Before the flowers bloom, I literally eat the dandelions, make creeping charlie tea, and mint tea.  Yes, we have tons of mint.  It is quite aggressive and will take over if given the chance.  I'm okay with that.  I love mint.

I used to have some little containers like porcelain creamers and tiny vases.  I can't seem to find them.  But with spring here and summer not too far off, I plan to find some little vessels for holding the tiniest of flowers.  I think I may press some violets also.  It's always a good idea.

Lastly,  here is a sneak peek (hint) at where I am showing some artwork starting May 1st.  Locally at OMG cafe and gallery.  Read about Mary, the owner of OMG, and early founder of the Elmhurst Art Museum.  Stay tuned for more photos I hope to share soon!
