Anatomy of a Dandelion

Dandelions…. we all have them sprinkled throughout our lawns and pastures this time of year…

…they pretty much look like this….

(just in case you needed a visual)

But have you ever noticed the details… the beautiful anatomy they exhibit?

…the pollen laden pistols…

…the bracts (or modified leaves) that unfurl to reveal glorious color….

They really are beautiful…. these first flowers every child wants to gather.

Almost exotic upon closer inspection…

So next time you have a hankering to wallow in the pasture….

to get down to the dandelion’s point of view….

…take time to notice the beauty… the color… the details.

And then roll over and turn your face to the sun… and close your eyes…. and remember….

Every living thing is beautiful… and so are YOU!
