Beauty Where You Least Expect It

"Weeds are flowers too once you get to know them." A.A. Miline

A note from the artist: When I saw that May 13th was Tulip Day, I planned on designing a quipple honoring tulips and other beautiful flowers that pop up in May. But while driving one day, I noticed some yards wildly overtaken by vibrant golden dandelions. I simultaneously acknowledged their beauty (in my opinion, for yellow is my favorite color!) as well as the frustration that the homeowners must feel upon seeing their grass covered in “weeds.” This quote by the ever-wonderful A.A. Miline then came to my mind, as I have been saving it for a quipple for some time. I hope this reminds you of your childhood, because if it was anything like mine, I couldn’t always tell the difference between “weeds” and “flowers.”
