The  dandelions have returned and was there ever such a yellow?  A truly unappreciated flower, for sure.  I love this little piece from a favorite book of mine:  "The Persistence of Yellow" by Monique Duval:

"You ask me how things work.  I think of endless cycles, the hum and spin of everything.  So I tell you this:  hold the pale green stalk up high.  And then run hard so the wind will catch the wings of the dandelion seeds.  Let them fall like sparks, like stars, back to the earth.  I can tell you are not satisfied.  But really.  That's all there is to it:  The persistence of yellow."      #204
