  • Lovely Margaret! These pesky things grow so profusely, I wonder why weeds always seem to be stronger than the flowers?!!!!!

  • A lovely composition of this pretty but nuisance flower Margaret:)

  • Unusual flower to paint Margaret but I like the curves on this.

  • Thank you Margaret :) I know they can be a bit of a pest in a garden but they have such beautiful flowers and they are great for pollinators - especially early on before much other stuff is out.

    Thank you Carole :)

  • Very good Margaret. A nuisance yes but very colourful.

  • Ahhh! One of my favourite flowers, we don't seem to find proper dandelions on Gozo. This is a lovely loose study! They are absolutely precious because bees need them so very much! Love it, Margaret

  • Thank you Richard :)

    Thank you Thalia :) They are such a beautiful bright yellow - and yes, they are so important for pollinators - a hard sell to get people to let them grow in their gardens though! (I've got off with a few this Spring but only just!)

  • I like them Margaret! As you say, early food, especially for the new emerging queens.

  • Thanks for commenting Fiona - must admit I like them - a lot around on the pavements near here at the moment - gorgeous and bright.
