Spring Chalkboard

If you’ve been following along,  this is the 3rd day of our 6 Days of Spring series, today I’m showing off my Spring Chalkboard…

My daughter’s favorite “flower” is the “blow flower” – more commonly known as the dandelion..  Followed closely by red roses, good luck to her first boyfriend combining those into a bouquet!

I tried explaining they are in fact a weed, but she won’t have it.

How could something so cool be a weed?

They are yellow (one of her favorite colors) and then they turn all soft and feathery and you can spend half the day blowing their little feathery seeds all over the yard. (hence the name blow flower).

The Mr. just loves when we do this – my little lady doesn’t understand why we don’t get to have a yard full of the lovely yellow flowers like our lucky neighbors do.

So when my daughter asked
 “When will the snow go away and the blow flowers come back?”
 I knew I had the inspiration for my spring chalkboard.

Then I stumbled across the perfect quote from Eileen Granfors poem Spring Flight her book White Sheets.

Isn’t it beautiful?  Just makes me think of Spring.

I’m so ready for Spring even if it brings on the dandelions :)

  1. Hi – I saw some things on Pinterest that I liked today —- and they led me to your blog. I LOVE it! You have such wonderful, beautiful, creative ideas and I’m already learning so much from you. Thanks! I’m now a subscriber :)

  2. Such a great quote and cute drawing.. i love it! Dandelion greens are one of the most nutrient rich greens on earth, they go amazing in salads when they are young and tender (and not as bitter). Dandelions are definitely not an undesirable plant, they are a gift from the Creator! The roots when they are roasted make a wonderful hot beverage with honey. i absolutely love dandelion. :)

  3. So cute! I’m working on a chalkboard right now, but can’t figure out what to put on it…this would work!!
    Thanks for sharing!

  4. I understand your daughter’s love for her “blow flowers.” I, too, have a fondness for them ever since a walk home from the neighborhood park one day with my then four-year old granddaughter. I don’t remember ever sharing with her, as I had been taught when young, to make a wish when blowing on the softness of the dandelion seed heads. That day, however, I heard her soft little voice say, “When I grow up, I want to be a princess.” A sweet memory I’ll always carry in my heart when I see “blow flowers.”
