Good Gracious! I sat here marveling over that wonderful yellow center trying to figure out how you did that! Then I read your description. :D NEAT!!!!!

Do you remember those Dr. Seuss Books about, "Who-Ville"? It seems to me if there really ~is~ a. Whoville, it lives in this beautiful dandelion of yours!

Very beautiful work, SSSKiki!!
