Dandelion Da StatNisland Flower - per RS Marguerite Rivas sipoet Well, I guess dandelion is the popular favorite. Lovely work, Art and Gina. I'm still thinking violet and honeysuckle though. On the other hand, it seems that the dandelion is the popular favorite with the StatNisland diaspora. I can see by your poetic renderings that a lot of youse guys relate to the dandelion in its disbursement of seeds. Maybe I don't relate to it since I'm still here - firmly rooted in Staten Island soil. Perhaps we should not just declare one Staten Island flower, but should pick two flowers - both symbols of our fidelity to and love for our island home, yet representative of who we have become.
