Mongolian Dandelion

Dandelion (Taraxacum mongolicum, 蒲公英).

There are comparatively few dandelions where I walk beside Xiang river, but they will be more soon since warm spring rains are upon us. They can be used in teas or in Traditional Chinese Medicine as enemas for treating some kidney problems: the world is full of taraxacological curiosities.
