Nice shots, Lucy! Those are considered lawn weeds here. People spend a lot of time trying to get rid of them.

They are the flowery answer to The Ugly Duckling - just waiting to burst into their lovely yellow.

Weeds but so full of energy and promise (for Rabbits anyhow)

A sure sign of spring.

Hello Brian. Dandelions are often seen as weeds here too. I find enthusiasm for getting rid of them puzzling. They are easy to grow, have pleasantly coloured leaves and flower brightly over a long season. Maybe it's that we often can't appreciate what we can easily have a lot of.

Hi Rune. I'm not sure the duckling is all that ugly either!

Hello Hermes. I'll take dandelions as a sign of promise, even though I'm not a rabbit!

Hello Andy. Dandelions belong to spring and summer and autumn beyond. Brilliantly hopeful and cheerful. I'm looking forward to golden verges.

I have just posted about dandelions. Ours are in full flower.I admire their ability to survive wherever they get a foothold.
