Dandelions are an unappreciated little plant. Often dandelions are the subject of disdain as the ruination of lawns. But others, especially those with youthful souls, see them as a bit of sunshine and fun.

Getting down close to the ground, up close and personal, with a dandelion (Taraxacum officinale), we find a little sunshine. The yellow flower is a relative of the daisy, which always brings joy. The little pops of color in a field of green cause a little surprise and happiness as the young at heart see them.

And as the cycle of the season completes, the stems containing natural milky latex have one last bit of fun. The seeds come out in a little puff ball that begs to have a breath of air for scattering.

All in all, life is easier if we look at dandelions as little clusters of sunlight and fun.
