Spunky Flowers

In response to a CDHK challenge, this post completes a tan renga in praise of dandelions.  Yes, dandelions.  They are spunky flowers, not weeds.
(BTW, the [Menu] button atop the vertical black bar reveals the widgets.)

As my earlier post in praise of dandelions noted, the same spunk that frustrates prissy gardeners also thrusts green and gold into the grayest and grimmest of our cityscapes.  I like that tradeoff, so I am glad I can respond to
