I remember the bright yellow dandelions of summer growing in our front yard when I was a child. They had such a bright and intense yellow color. My mom liked the dandelions also and so they were allowed to grow unchecked giving us a beautiful carpet of the yellow flowers in the front yard.
And then came the fun time when they went to seed and formed these fluffy white balls.
I would blow on the fluff balls scattering their seeds to the wind and watched as they floated away on their little parasols. For a young child on summer vacation each day was an adventure. What a delight those dandelions were. Lew
