38. Monday Flower: Dandelion

Taraxacum erythrospermum aka Red-seeded Dandelion

Just for not tell this is a flower that stands all year, its flowers are used as ‘'last’' alimentation for several insects before the winter comes. Also it is probably one of the first flowers from spring where they feed too :)

Today I saw a Butterfly! Is this a Good or a Bad sign!? :))

      Great shots! I think in german we call it Löwenzahn. Direct translation: Lion`s tooth. I love the colour. Hey, yesterday I saw two flies in the restaurant we ate. I think that was a bad sign (LOL).

      I'm perfectly happy to see a dandelion~ahh in hopes of spring. It's interesting to know that the little yellow blooms are harvested and fermented into "wine" by some home brewers! Perfectly wonderful, Ricky.

      I like weeds. Who decides which are weeds? How can something as beautiful as this be called bad and need destroying?

      This flower of this dandelion is different from the ones that grow here. We consider them a weed - they are pretty, but hard to get rid of if they ever get started in a yard.
