First Dandelion of 2018

Here is an image of the first dandelion i've seen in flower in 2018.
I've been looking out for the first dandelion here in Preston for a while. It's been a cold few months and i've seen a couple of dandelions nearly ready to come out, but not fully. However, yesterday I was walking along the river and saw a few in full flower. Hoorah! They're back.


  1. Hi there. Somehow stumbled upon your blog and thought I'd share that the dandelion is the symbol for US military 'brats' - the children of military parents. You may have already come across that but they chose it because it "blooms where it's planted" - like all of us military kids attempted to do!

  2. I didn't know this - thanks for the information! Sorry it took so long for me to publish your comment.
