Engleza de joi/ Dandelion

Dandelion = a small wild plant with a bright yellow flower that becomes a soft white ball of seeds called a dandelion clock.

“Most of the dandelions had changed from suns into moons.”
Vladimir Nabokov

She is primarily a teacher of English. Also her mind is lured by goodies like finance, economics, interest rates, the stock market, as she has a hankering for how the money is made. Nevertheless she is a dreamer on a cloud...As dreams cost nothing... In ordinary days she is a word-weaver for everything and everything that breathes. In the best of days she just follows the seasons by means of bike, skis, or roller-skates. She is grateful to all colors of the world and to people who read, laugh, smile and drop a line here, or on her email.

    They are among my (and Petronela’s) favourite flowers – so cheerfully misbehaved.😉

  2. In my city many people are obsessed with eradicating them from their lawns. Some even go to superstores to purchase elaborate mechanised pullers. I’ve always thought them beautiful.

    We get a whole bunch each year. They are among the daisies which make them hard to get when you snap their heads off. They’re messy too. Get all that yellow on your hands-messy.

  4. Methinks it’s psychological projection of their own inner “weeds.” Like Lady Macbeth, “out damned spot!” Xx☺😱💖

    I totally agree! You see way beyond my words :). I am every day at war with my inner “weeds”. Sometimes I win, sometimes I learn 🙂 I am sorry for responding so late.. I bid you a lovely day!

    Never heard this wonderful observation from Nabokov. His visuality strikes and your choice of these harmonious definitions as well. ~
