Dandelion Dreams

Some see Dandelions as bothersome weeds on their front lawn. I see them as beautiful edible plants. They also inspired me to create the above digital painting.

The common dandelion, enemy of suburban lawns, is an unusually nutritious food. It's leaves contain substantial levels of vitamins A, C, D, and B Complex as well as magnesium, iron, zinc, potassium, manganese, copper, choline, calcium, boron and silicon.

We couldn't move away from the field of goldenrod because it was on the property of the people we were visiting...
