I am fascinated by these yellow flowers, some clusters appear to have grown in circles. This circle has a runaway!
The leaves resemble those of a dandelion, however the flowers don’t transmute into a powderpuff.
Long periods without rain and frequent lawn mowing are everyday challenges for this cheerful non-native in the nearby park.
I wonder if these dandelions have evolved into keeping their heads small and stems short?
I don’t remember many tv commercials, not a good candidate for being marketed to!
I find this old Yellow Pages commercial amusing.

I often see these sturdy flowers in parks, next to foot paths and in gardens.
Even when the skies are grey the flowers appear bright.
Like so many tiny suns I find them cheerful as if they light up the Earth.
This building in Dulwich Hill, Sydney, NSW, is in the process of being demolished to make way for a development of apartments.
I can imagine a corrugated metal bull nosed roof providing shade for the occupants of a balcony that is adorned with iron lace work.You can see how the former roof has protected the paint from the sun’s bleaching rays, marked by shading of the painted surfaces.
I particularly like the blue French doors contrasted against the yellow wall, it reminds me of the heat of a European Summer. It is a shame that the whole building wasn’t painted with the same colours.
This plant produces fantastic blooms that last for just a few days before the petals droop. We refer to it as the yellow lily because we have misplaced the label.
Life is not all about walking straight lines!
