Artist's Description

Some call these weeds… Some call these flowers… how can you not call them “wonderful & thankful” when your child brings you a handfull of yellow into the house and says " I Love You Mom"… so how can you call these weeds? I say it is a field of gold and of “love” when brought in by your little one….
Photograph was taken around Molas Pass, Colorado, between Durango and Silverton in the San Juan Mountains.

Common Name: Dandeloin
Family: genus Taraxacum of the flowering plant family Asteraceae (known as the aster, daisy, or sunflower family
Area Found: native to Europe and Asia but has spread to many other places
Color: Taraxacum officinale, whose solitary yellow flower head and “fruit” in the form of a ball-shaped cluster of wind-dispersed, one-seeded fruits make it a familiar sight—but which also is considered a weed in many places.
Uses: Dandelion is consumed as a leafy vegetable, whether cooked or raw (such as in salads or soup), and dandelion flower heads are used to make wine and jam. Medicinally, dandelion is used for a variety of purposes, including for treatment of liver disease, anemia, nervousness, and so forth
In addition to the dandelion and daisy, other well-known members of the family include lettuce, chicory, globe artichoke, safflower, chrysanthemums, ragwort, and sunflower.
