It's dandelion season. We know we need to mow, but there's something so colorful and warm about all the yellow and whispy white flowers in the yard right now. Little Sis had a whole dandelion "dinner" in the backyard last year, complete with dandelion bouquet, dandelion soup, and a yellow bowlful of cereal. Oh, and rabbit ears.
We're currently enjoying the dandelions before the mower mows them down again. Lots of wishes to make!
And of course, we feel it's important to get to know our favorite little
weed wildflower better via a book or two.

I wish this lovely book was still in print, but apparently, it is not. It's beautifully illustrated and quite informative. Thank goodness for the library!
