With its cheery little countenance, the dandelion has to be one of my favorite little wildflowers. Great in salads, very good at cheering one up, they are quite prolific, much to the consternation of gardeners!
My husband hates to see them in his "perfect" lawn- but we live in the country now - we don't have a lawn - we have a field!!! Dandelions are very much at home there!!!!
While the horses were grazing, I was admiring the dandelions, and decided to awaken my sketching abilities- notice I did NOT say talent!
I picked the several stages of the dandy lion, minus the puff ball- and tried to replicate them with paper and pencil.
A little yellow gel pen embellishment- and this is the best I can do.
But, I am not giving up- it was fun, and practice makes perfect-maybe!!!
