126/365... Dandelions are flowers joy.

Whoever decided that dandelions are weeds?

We spend so much time and money trying to eliminate our yard of them. Yet they bring such joy to children. Not to mention they make for great photo opportunities.

I would have a yard filled with them if they weren't classified as a weed.

Dandelions are flowers joy.

What fun! Those flyaways are so crystal clear and sharp - great job!

Last year my dear fiance decided to fertilize the lawn. Lesson learned: you kill the weeds first, then fertilize. We had a 6 foot tall dandelion on steriods on the side of our house and yes we have the pictures to prove it :)

This shot it really beautiful. I have been thinking of doing something like this one. I love how the seeds are scattering and how the light catches them.

delicious bokeh (is that too weird?)
I'm so hoping I can find a dandelion when I go home to my parent's soon- living on base, they apparently frown upon letting them grow anywhere ;)

Wow!! Wonderful capture!! I love the little pieces floating away and his face so intent on blowing :O)
