I was so disappointed when I went outside this morning to go to school. I couldn’t see any yellow dandelions – only fluffy seed on top of stems where the flowers used to be. And I knew there were lots of dandelions around only a day or two ago. Here is my dog Missy standing behind a clump of dandelions with seed heads sticking out.
Drop your split stems into the water cup or jar and watch the strips curl up. Use them for decorations or just have fun watching them curl up. Here are some pictures of how they look.
As I was picking the dandelion stems I noticed that there were dandelion flowers that were not opened. I think maybe they open in only the warmest and/or sunniest part of the day and then close back up until late morning the next day.
