While some parts of the world are still waiting for the snow to melt, and others are just beginning to experience some relief from high summer temperatures, here in Chicago, the first flower of spring has just bloomed, and you guessed it. A dandelion.

The bees are back too. One of our very photogenic Chicago bees was seen buzzing around this flower, but flew off before I could capture the moment.
