WEEDS LOVE SPRING TOO


Several of these puffballs have decided to take up residence in my lawn.
Lovely in themselves but not in my lawn.
Enlarging the picture will show the detail.

I'm so looking forward to real spring here. The weeds.. not so much.

I think this soldier looks too pretty to mow down...
Hope you kept at least one...

Perfect Picture! The white against the green, stunning. Did you use the new camera? You seem to be mastering it quite well.

The details in this photo are really great Sue.

Both this photo and the one below are lovely when enlarged!
And on a practical side, the greens of the dandelion are supposed to be good in a salad or cooked. I tried some in salad..a bit bitter..but I've not tried cooked:)

Poor dandelions...they have such a bad reputation. But I agree I don't like to see them in my lawn.

This is a pretty photo of it though.

Whenever I see one of these, I feel like sneezing. I like the title of your post. I don't think my weeds left from winter.

Beautiful photo......, when they don't move.

Fantastic detail. Perfect selection of DOF.

I have taken similar picture in past and that is a fascinating subject. I just remember how much fun to take such pictures.

oooo naughty dandelions making a home where they're not welcome. I'll have lots of them in a few weeks time, I'm sure.

When we see this beauty, we have a real summer already then :)
Greetings!

Whenever I see dandelion I always remember of my childhood when I used to play with its lovely puffballs by blowing it. This is beautiful photo that you have taken of it but this puffball doesn’t allow me to blow its seeds! :-)

Really pretty! I am in love with your green grass. Ours is still brown. Brown as can be!

Wanda said...

Somewhere I have a picture of my granddaughter and me with the biggest dandelions I've ever seen. It was a least 4 inches across.

Lovely shot.


LOL:Wanda

We call these dandelions, or kids call them 'fairies'. This is a good picture Sue. - Dave
