finally, a dandelion

I’ve been on the lookout for a dandelion all spring.  I don’t know where they were all hiding because I hadn’t seen a single one until last weekend.  I finally found a patch with only two good ones and a few that were missing most of their seed head.  Luckily, I had an extra cute volunteer close by to help with my photos!  This is my nephew, Sawyer.  He’s very good at blowing away the seeds.

  8. PERFECT!!

    I LOVE that you were able to capture the "stems" (what are the little flying things called, anyway? lol) floating away. Your helper did a great job too!

  10. Great photos! (I had to laugh thinking how my husband would have a fit if one of our grandkids did that in our yard. I used to love to blow the seeds all over when I was young!)

  22. You are welcome to come to my house & pick all the dandelions that are trying to take over my yard! ;) Great shots!

  23. Very cute. It seems we are blowing at dandelions all the time at the moment. If we are riding our bikes somewhere and the little ones see them, we have to stop IMMEDIATELY to blow. *grin* It does create some very pretty pictures though. :)
