POTD - Dandelion Field of Dreams [Earth]

Dandelions cover this empty lot in our subdivision. I think the lot is the LAST lot available in the development, but since it is sited along the major thoroughfare, and is irregularly shaped, it may stay empty for many more years.

The yellow flowers exploded in bloom yesterday and they caught my eye this afternoon driving home from work. Just a small, small sampling of this yellow "field of dreams":

[yes, that is sarcasm - I really feel sorry for the folks living next to this empty lot. At least we are down the street, and I don't want to hear how a little dandelion seed can travel up to 4 miles]

Wow these are sooo pretty and I don't know if I've ever said that about dandelions! Fantastic shot!

You did a great job making the dandelions look pretty.

Dandelions do look lovely in photos! Too bad they aren't so pretty when they're in your front yard!! :)

Seeing these actually made me wish for dandelions! In Alaska, we still have the white stuff...and it's EVERYWHERE. I can't wait until spring! -Esther www.estherpedersonblog.com

Just amazing color and I love your perspective. WOW...I just would love to see some Dandelions right now. Soon enough. Thanks for the treat. :)

I love the perspective on this shot... pretty soon that will be a field full of "wish flowers" (as my dd calls them). She would be in heaven! (and the neighbors would be getting plenty of seeds blown their way, LOL!)

You made the dandelions look so pretty, the green on the yellow is so nice! Just keep them out of my yard! :)

Wow! 4 miles! My lawn is doomed! You managed to make a WEED at least produce a very pretty photo! Nice DOF! And I wonder if the flooding really did cause birds/ducks, etc to change their patterns this year.

Oh I just noticed these everywhere yesterday too, great shot!

I know exactly which lot you are thinking of. The crazy thing is I saw them mowing it days before this same sight.
