Mellow Yellow Monday #8

I love dandelions ... not sure why so many people around here are always trying to get rid of them. They remind me of my childhood and playing in the yard ... warm summer breezes.

I took this photo last summer. Luckily some places are banning pesticides and dandelions rule once again. And why not? They're so happy looking!


Thank you to Moon-Writer for this very cool award ... and there's yellow in it too! Thanks!!

LOL well dandelion are okay out in the open fields but they kinda make a mess of lawns. And yeap I remember making dandelion bracelets. You outa read Ray Bradbury's book called Dandelion Wine. Cute story.

Kathy W said...

oops forgot to say I like your picture. =) Have a great MYM.

♥♥ Willa ♥♥ said...

i love it as well like my boys, especially when it turns into that white thingy where you can blow it, and my boys call it "the wish", :D

bobbie said...

Congratulations on your new award!

Dandelions are the best! Your picture is really great.

Jackie said...

Congratulations on the award!! i think the dandelion thing is very regional sometimes.

I never truly appreciated their beauty until I lived in Maine.

Down here everyone just sees them as weeds that destroy their lovely smooth pampered lawns.

I know when we lived in Texas before Maine we fought to keep them out of our yard something fierce.

But, now I don't even ow until they are done...I simply love them. Your picture of them is wonderful and makes me feel happy.:-)))

Yeah,, but what I love is the Dandelion seed the white one which my children love to blow ......
Mine is up too... have a nice week...

threesidesofcrazy said...

Such wonderful childhood memories that dandelions bring back. Mine is flowers this week in hopes of bribing spring to come sooner - LOL.

Jan said...

Had to laugh, I posted a dandelion today, too. I really like you shot of the dandelion field.

♥peachkins♥ said...

I have yet to blow on a real dandelion...

Happy Mellow Yellow monday!

Mary said...

Lovely and full of memories. As a child I got paid to pick the dandelions in our yard! A penny for every 10. Think a kid would work for that now?? Ha!

Connie said...

Drowsey, I love dandelions too! :D I hope you have a wonderful week ahead of you.

Mariamellie said...

Hi.. thanks for hosting this meme.. so cheerful and creative yellow! =)

Speedcat Hollydale said...

I worked one spring killing dandelions ... people go NUTS when they are in the lawn!

When I was a kid, I used to gather them for mom ((smile))

Jess said...

Congrats on your award! Great picture :)

RA said...

Thank you for this interesting meme. The dandelions look wonderful. Best wishes :)

Buona settimana.- :-)

Carletta said...

I live on five acres now as opposed to an urban lawn and last summer I began learning how to live with them.

This is my first Mellow Yellow Post and I'm happy to be joining in today.

Tina said...

i havent saw dandilions for months. bring on the spring!

Alice (in BC Canada) said...

I also love dandelions and wonder why so many people spend so much time and money trying to get rid of them. They actually are very good herbs for culinary use. I've never had a dandelion salad, but have read about them. When I raised rabbits, I gave them fresh picked Dandelion leaves, especially the new mothers as it helped to bring down the milk so all the babies would be well fed.

Happy MYM.

Sharon said...

I love wildflowers too!! Nice photo & Happy Mellow Yellow Monday:)

Tink *~*~* said...

And besides all that - dandelion greens are good-for-you components of salad mixes commonly found in the supermarket!

Nice photo even though some people do consider them weeds.

Dianne said...

I like them too and your photo shows just why they're so pretty

Connie T. said...

A field of yellow flowers is nice. I can't wait for the flowers to bloom here. I want it to be spring time.

me ann my camera said...

I like any picture that reminds me of spring! Very nice.

Sherrie said...

I'm new to your place. I have my Mellow Yellow Monday posted and linked back to you. Boy Scouts and my son. Have a great day!!


Lilli & Nevada said...

Lovely field of yellow, i would love to see that right now as i am so tired of winter Have a good week

Brenda @ Its A Beautiful Life said...

I'm so excited to have something very yellow for today's contribution. My first time too!

Tarolino said...

Ah Dandilions. The gardeners nightmare and yet what could be lovelier than a dandilion field in full bloom. We'll have to wait for about two months still for a sight like this here in Finland.

Unknown said...

Can't wait for that dandelion yellow. I say this whilst looking out a new-fallen 8 inches of snow here in western Mass.

Chin up, though!

Happy MYM!

Babs-beetle said...

I like many weeds. They are so pretty and natural looking :O)

This is very beautiful. I love to visit some place where you can pick wild flowers and put them on the vase.
