Description:  A dandelion I drew using colored pencils back in 6th grade. The dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) is my favorite flower because all parts of the plant are edible. The leaves make a good salad with chopped watermelon, chopped boiled eggs, olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Medium: Colored pencils on paper.
