Uh Oh

I walked past the little garden by the car… and right beside I found….

Dandelion... da dum da dum da dum da dum... I think we're going to need a bigger boot

Dandelion… da dum da dum da dum da dum… I think we’re going to need a bigger boot

I have a good idea what Ray Bradbury thinks of dandelions… in “Dandelion Wine” he wrote “Dandelion wine.  The words were summer on the tongue.  The wine was summer caught and stoppered.”  “Hold summer in your hand, pour summer in a glass, a tiny glass of course, the smallest tingling sip for children; change the season in your veins by raising glass to lip and tilting summer in.”  He also wrote the colour of a dandelion was so intense it’d burn a hole in your retina.  But when I saw these plants, all I could think of …. was the theme from “Jaws”.
