 Melt butter in a medium saucepan over low heat.  stir in the flour to make
 a roux.  Stir in the milk a little at a time until smooth.  Mix in the
 dandelions, celery seed, thyme, and bay leaf.  Simmer until the flowers
 are tender, 15-20 minutes.
 
 (The book notes that Oliver Wendall Homes likens the color of dandelion to
 “sparks that have leapt from kindling sun’s fire.”)
