ABC Wednesday: D is for Dandelion

I always consider Dandelion as a weed and a nonsense for the lawns. However, I must admit that it does have lovely yellow color flowers.

The yellow flower heads turn into balls of silver tufted fruits, which every kid loves.

That includes our lovely granddaughter.  Whenever she got a chance in the Spring, she would pick up every Dandelion in the neighborhood and blow on it.

I don't think there is much else that so quickly sums up the whimsy of childhood as a dandelion does.

I have always thought the dandelion was a beautiful flower and you capture a beautiful picture of it. Your granddaughter is a real cutie. Great choice for D Day.

I never understood why dandelions are considered weeds. I like 'em.

Nice shots.

Your photo shows the lowly weed in all its true glory! And as kids we use to do exactly as your granddaughter is doing -- spreading them with our breath.
Thanks!

I have always been partial to dandelions - a close look reveals much more than a weed! Good post!!

Blowing and making a wish on dandelion puffs is the best pastime of childhood.
Great pictures too.
