The dandelions are still out and about in the lawn, in various guises.
(More here, the second illustration is lovely.)
I know they were some of Caine’s favourites, so of course I stopped to take a few photos (did not see any dandy lions, though – sadly).
And on the subject of vague nostalgia, here is song I meant to share a while ago, from a new folk/fusion/? group of singers called Tautumeitas (“The Folk Girls”, although the term ‘tautumeitas’ is generally used as a collective term for unmarried women who are not kin). They have a few I will be sharing (love their stuff), I know Caine herself shared one a while ago. This song is called Sadziedāmi, and the chorus, in essence, says: Let us sing together, sisters, while we are still in one place – who knows where each of us shall be other years?

That Dandy Lion is just the shizznit!
Aw the little dandlions, can’t decide which I like best.
Those Dandy Lion drawings are amazing.

I wouldn’t be opposed to dandy lions coming into my dreams as I’m in the process of going to bed.
