Dandelions in bloom for mellow yellow Monday

This photo is of my second find of dandelions in bloom last week. On both the 15th. and 16thth. I found Dandelion blooms, both were nestled(wedged) snugly against the cement foundation of a building. Their location choice suggests a strong wilful determination to thrive. This flower has a striking beauty which is appreciated after a long, cold winter. However it presence after admid lawns and flower beds becomes a nuisance as spring and summer progress. Our lawns used to be full of thembut my husband digs them by their roots and discards them so we have few dandelions to cope with, but we wish others would do the same as their fly away seeds often plant themselves in our yard and thepulling up of dandelion plants is a yearly chore of determination of ours to be rid of them each year. But regardless of their nuisance factor, I am always excited to see the first dandwelion blooms showing ther beautiful yellow heads each year. got photos with yellow? Why not post them to Mellow Yellow Monday?

I finally found something good about Walmart! We drove by yesterday and the parking lot islands were covered in dandelions almost solid yellow, they were beautiful.(Some might argue that that isn't so "good.")

Most people think dandelions are weeds, but I've seen whole fields of them in bloom in northern Vermont--and they are spectacular!


Splash of yellow,
Dash of gold,
Make me mellow,
Never old;
Keep my humor
In fine trim,
Always laughing,
Never grim.
