"Remembering Summer..."

...Back in Illinois.

...And all the happy golden tufts of this
wondrously winsome
but
wickedly weedy wildflower
dancing happily in soft summer zephyrs
before
bursting into puffs of silken down anxious to fly
at the slightest breath of a breeze
across the grassy prairie to start new families.

Funny, how much I hated them! LOL :)

Ah, the wonderful dandelion. Too bad they have such a bad rap when they can 'harvest sunbeams'. Love your saying on this.

I thought it should be the state flower we had so many of them. They were my horses favorite treat she just loved them - running out of superlative for the wonderful work you all do

What a thing to think of for summer but it sure is apt. Kids love them and adults seem to hate them but they certainly do make you think of summer.

What a great post and sketch! When I was little, my mom told me that dandelions were little drops of sunshine. Your post reminded me of that.
