Pictures of Dandelion Flower-Dandelion Symbolism

Spring is coming soon and the dandelion will show up everywhere, even burst through the cracks of city sidewalks. With it's bright golden yellow, furry looking flower which blooms almost anytime of the year, the dandelion is one of the many amazing, under-appreciated resources that exist right under our noses.

Plants in our lives have great power. Indoor plants and outdoor plants can bring us down or lift us up.
We have all experienced the ability to regenerate from our roots like the dandelion. Their ability to thrive under the most adverse conditions can teach us persistence and survival.

Dandelion Flower Symbolism

Dandelions stand for wishes coming true. The dozens of seeds released by each flower head represent fertility and abundance. The seeds' journey illustrates a time of clothing the past and a symbol of hope for starting something new. When we blow away the puffball with it's seeds, we make a wish for something better. It also symbolize faithfulness and happiness, affection returned, desire, sympathy, Oracle of Time and Love.
Dandelions are rich in symbolism and some of these symbols are very different and opposed to each other; in some traditions dandelions symbolize flirtation or grief.
In my next post I shall share with you my experiences with the dandelion herbal tea and medical effects.

Funny dog photos - big dogs

I love dogs, I can't help it and of course, they love me back.
In the following dog photos I show you a few funny faces from my photo collection.

The Hungarian Komondor

Don't you ever think that this dog is neglected; he is a champion among his kind. His hair must never be brushed or combed. Its coat is divided into cords and trimmed and it is always white. He needs a lot of bathing and takes a long time to dry.
Because this breed is bred to work independently as a flock guardian, the Komondor is very territorial and highly protective of his family, house, car, and livestock. He is a smart dog, but easily bored, loyal to and respectful of his master, but fierce against threats to his charges.

So, if anybody who wants a pet like him, must establish clear rules for discipline and dominate him as he can be very willful if he is stronger minded than the humans around him.
In my opinion, that makes him more adorable.

In the following two photos you can see the young German Shepard of one of my friends, a sweet little guy. No wonder he is tired after so much "landscape rendering" and eating up all my desert.

A beautiful Saint Bernard watching over the property in the nightI took the next photo of this beautiful Saint Bernard in the dark, from the street. As I have some privileges by dogs (because I love them), he let me take the picture, though he was barking when other admirers stopped near the house.
We all know what he is capable of when it comes to saving human life.
Unfortunately I can't keep such a large beauty in my home, but I admire them, where ever I can.
