I remember the bright yellow dandelions of summer growing in our front yard. 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 our front yard.

And then 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 as they floated away with their little parasols. For a young child on summer vacation each day was an adventure. What a delight those dandelions were. Lew
