Fine & Dandy


Hand drawn dandelion and dandelion seeds, with pattered yellow background and poetry;
‘The Dandelion (originally written ‘butterfly’), an idle thing, Nor honey makes, nor yet can sing, As do the bee and bird; Nor does it, like the prudent ant, Lay up the grain for times of want, A wise and cautious hoard. My youth is but a summer’s day: Then like the bee and ant I’ll lay A store of learning by; And though from flower to flower I rove, My stock of wisdom I’ll improve Nor be a butterfly.’ Adelaide O’Keefe (1776-1855)
