There's been a few Dandelions blooming around here. I was planning to order some Dandelion seed , then I spotted ..............................
this seed head , so I gathered a couple of these instead of ordering.
I sowed them in an egg carton with some potting soil I had on hand. Then covered them with plastic wrap to keep the moisture in and I have them sitting near a heat vent. I'll be watching them closely to see if any of the seeds sprout. I have a raised bed that is in a semi-shaded area and I've been thinking about buying some seed and sowing that bed with Dandelion. I have Dandelion growing in the yard here and there , but not as much as I would like to have for harvest. So if these seeds sprout , I'll just gather plenty of seed heads and plant them in that bed.
Sunday morning I awoke with an image of this Dandelion Fairy , I'm not sure if I was dreaming about her or if she just came to me upon awaking. I got up , grabbed a pencil and started sketching. She had Dandelion leaf wings and a Dandelion hat that I remember. I'll be adding color to her later and redoing her croooked hands (LOL).
