Make a Wish

“Photo is a small voice, at best, but sometimes – just sometimes – one photograph or a group of them can lure our senses into awareness. Much depends upon the viewer; in some, photographs can summon enough emotion to be a catalyst to thought.”  

– W. Eugene Smith

In the Victorian Language of Flowers the Dandelion represents faithfulness, happiness, and love’s oracle.  To little children, a dandelion is a fuzzy flower with the purpose of wishing upon, or maybe, a pretty flower to give to Mommy, whom they love so much.    I thought the above quote was a nice compliment to the images of dandelions because the images of the dandelions summon emotions and thoughts of childhood memories and wishes made, and remind of the hope of wishes to come.  Because just sometimes, wishes do come true.

Flowers on the Roadsides of Buck’s County

“The tender words we spoke to one another are stored in the secret heart of heaven and one day, like rain, they will fall and spread and our mystery will grow green all over the earth.” – Rumi

If words could fall like rain, I would want them to grow and look like the flowers I see adorning the roadsides during Spring in Buck’s County.

Yes, it is the same winged creature from my post on Saturday, just on different flowers. It has no bias for colors.

This week in Buck’s County you don’t drive far without seeing these flowers alongside the roads. They are so cheery and catch my eye every time I pass by them. Wouldn’t it be nice to rest in a field of them and day dream under the warm rays of the sun?
