Longtime readers may remember my post about the breathtaking dandelion installation by Swiss artist Regine Ramseier. Since then my fondness for the art and design of this humble weed has not dwindled. There is something powerful about a flower, so plain and common in life, that reaches its pinnacle of beauty and dynamism at the moment of death, just before the winds of time sweep it away for good.
