Photographer's Note

Now, when we are celebrating the Victory Day and are waiting Mother’s Day tomorrow, I would like to present some flowers in my today’s post. But the spring has just started and there are few of them in the city. At the moment of the capture I could find only cowslips (left-hand part of the bunch in the picture, not flowering yet) and dandelions, both being our primroses and the commonest grassy plants.

Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) is an herbaceous perennial plant of the family Asteraceae (Compositae). It can be found growing in temperate regions of the world, in lawns, on roadsides, on disturbed banks and shores of water ways, and other areas with moist soils. Dandelion is considered a weedy species, especially in lawns and along roadsides; it is sometimes used as a medical herb and in food preparation. As a nearly cosmopolitan weed, it is best known for its yellow flower heads that turn into round balls of silver tufted fruits that blow away on the wind. (From Wikipedia)
