Dandelions Are Beautiful, TOO!

Well, since I played favorites the other day by showing you my favorite tree, I thought I would show you that even WEEDS can be beautiful, too. About 2 weeks ago, I took some pictures of some dandelions and found they were actually quite pretty. I meant to post those pictures then, but didn't. I have taken even more the last few days and want to share them here. These dandelions are actually quite pretty. I love the bright yellow color. I love the fluffy seeds that just beg to be blown away. My husband hates to have these in our yard so I had to scout around to find them (don't tell him, but there are a few in our yard, too.)




Don't you just want to blow?

Wow! You're right... dandelions in extreme close-up really are beautiful! I love the first picture... if your post title hadn't given it away, I never would've known that was a dandelion. I love how there's no perspective point to able to gauge how big this flower really is. It could be a plate-sized dialia for all we know!

I have a new respect for dandelions. But sorry, I still need to dig them out of my front lawn. :)

Um, you could've had a total photo shoot in my backyard today. I spent a good hour de-dandelion-ing it. Who knew I was getting rid of "art"?
