I love dandelions. Their little splashes of yellow across the grass are like nature saying hello at my every footstep. Once they turn into seed, they give me the opportunity to make a wish while helping nature make more splashes of yellow. The San Diego dirt is so dry, dandelions are a rare occurrence here but I got the opportunity to see many of them during our vacation on the East Coast.

Here are a few close-ups of yellow dandelions. I’ve never noticed the many curled-up pistils all over the dandelion blooms. Click on each picture to see them in more detail. They’re pretty cool looking.

I couldn’t wait to pick this dandelion in seed and blow on it, but first I had to take a picture of it.

    I wish I could say dandelions are a rare occurrence here. If we didn’t put something on our lawn (I have no idea what it is), the dandelions would be everywhere. 🙂
