70. Desert dandelion


Desert Dandelions belong to the Sunflower family. They are found in Sonoran desert and Great Basin Desert of North America.

Bright yellow flowers on branched stems bloom from March through June. A single plant can have many flower heads and each flower measure 1 to 1 and 1/2 inches wide.

The plant grows to a height of 6 to 14 inches. The leaves are 3 to 5 inches long and divide into thread-like lobes.

The fruits are topped with soft bristles and resemble seeds. In springs following wet winters, these flowers form brilliant patches of gold carpets on the sandy desert surface!

    Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  2. Nice blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your theme. Kudos

    • All my themes are customer-made by my innovative, intelligent
      and indutrious younger daughter in law Mrs. Rupa raman.
      But for her technical know how and tremendous help,
      my blogs would have remained just a dream for ever! 🙂
