A Sunny Dandelion Bloom

    I must say, Linda, that is a nice photo of something that I just hate to have in my yard. A dandelion is pretty to look at, but a big nuisance in the yard. I try to keep them out! However, regardless of the fact, that they are nothing but a weed, the flower is quite colorful.

    Or as a friend of mine says, “A weed is simply a wildflower that we don't like because it's so prolific!” As long as they're not in my garden, I love these dandies! My yard is usually filled with them, but I have to keep the garden soil loose to keep them from taking hold!I do not usually see these beauties so close up! Lovely pic!

    Oh, Linda, I love how you captured the light just right to get the definition! I always find yellow flowers (and white) difficult to photograph. I wish I could do close ups like this. Incidentally, Dandelions have vitamins A, B's, C, and D, and minerals. They have a medicinal use now supported by recent research. (see Pubmed). Though, I don't take advantage of the medicine cabinet growing in my yard, I take dandelion in capsule form as a substitute for a medication I cannot take.

    I love Dandies! My husband thinks that this is borderline insane…but I will refrain from mowing to turn the field yellow.
