|A simple close-up of a dandelion flower so common on the coast.|
The name "dandelion" comes from the French "dent de leon" which means "tooth of the lion" for the similarity between the leonid fang and the flower's petal.
I like this photo for the details that are visible, and for the blue background barely visible at the bottom, which provides a visual relief from the yellow-red.

So much yellow. As as a child we have a game which had us hold dandelions under each others nose and if it glowed yellow on their skin we would tell them they liked butter. I have no idea of the purpose of the game. Of course I was only 5-6 years old.
Women from first generations in Europe would collect these in the spring, wearing babushkas and carrying wicker baskets. I was told the leafs were spring tonic and the flowers for wine.....so....
There is nothing on earth that is simple, although I have used the word in some of my descriptions. Very nicely done. Yellow Rulz!
