Dandelions

A walk to pick up some salad and a delicious (mass-produced) mango tea at lunch led to the welcome sight of some truly huge, vivid dandelions along the sidewalk. With the crispy spring air and their fragrance in the air, it buoyed my spirits just when I needed it.

They also brought this old old commission to mind, a label design for a friend’s attempt at dandelion wine (I never got that bottle, so I’m not sure it was a successful attempt!)

There’s some unfortunate smudging – but I maintain a soft spot for this, perhaps due to the subject matter.
