I kept commenting on the huge dandelion puffs while we were on vacation and realized Scoob had no idea what I was talking about. We've eaten dandelion several times but apparently the man has never seen one in bloom or going to seed.
He'd never heard of using a dandelion (or buttercup, for that matter) to discover if someone liked butter. And he'd never used a dandelion puff to make a wish.
Since the dandelions were going to seed, we couldn't do anything about the first, but we did remedy his latter childhood deficiency.
When I was reviewing the photos I thought this looked a lot like a fireworks blossom. Happy Fourth!
