Taraxacum officinale



3rd March 2007


While I am grubbing around on my hands and knees looking for the first tiny cultivated flowers of spring, I can generally rely on a burst of bright yellow from a Dandelion growing in a crack in the paving, or taking over a gravel path. In its moment it is quite wonderful.

Well, it's February, the snowdrops are up and marvellous, the hellebores are up and marvellous, but this lovely dandelion is doing its best to outshine them. It raises my spirits and makes me feel redundant at the same time. This is the time of the year when the garden doesn't really require anything from me and this little flower is there to make sure I realise that!
