Dandy Girl Day 19 of the 30 day challenge

6" x 6"   watercolor   $50.00

The name, "dandelion" is a mispronunciation of the French name dent de lion, which translates to “tooth of the lion”.  This refers to the dandelion’s leaves which are serrated and look much like teeth.
When dandelions turn to fluff, however, children, animals and wind can take credit for spreading their lovely seeds which are so expertly sandwiched into the base of the stem.  I always marvel at seed heads and seed pods.  Take them apart yourself and you will find that they are ever so perfectly tucked in and ready for us to spread them into our garden.  Amazing!
