Blog Guelph: Just Dandy


Yellow and Yellow, originally uploaded by digitalambitions.

Welcome to another dandy day in Guelph.

I've been doing a heap of Wiking about town lately and have noticed the bumper crop of dandelion's the city is sporting. Personally, I feel friendly toward the edible beauty- so much so that today's photo series features multiple perspective of the plant. But if you don't love them - these links might offer you some dandelion busting strategies.
