dandelions after the rain



























and it rained most of yesterday, which means we will probably have a lot more dandelions than we did two days ago. they really are a neat flower, especially if you look at them up close. I never knew dandelions had so many little curly Q thingies. now I can't wait to inspect them more carefully in person.
also, if you want to get a better look at the raindrops, please click on this photo to enlarge.
for more yellows, please visit mellow yellow monday.

I never paid much attention to the curly Q's either. Love the pristine raindrops as well.

Very beautiful...it's sad that I fight a never ending battle with them in my own grass! I won this time, too. Now I feel guilty...

Hey Harriet said...

For something to be considered a weed they sure are pretty! I've always loved dandelions. I like them when they are yellow flowers and also when they are nothing but little balls of fluff :)

Thanks a bunch for visiting my new blog and for the kind words xo

I just picked two garbage bags full of the yellow rascals and didn't even stop to enjoy their beauty. This photo is beautiful!

Lily that is a gorgeous photo, I envy your ability with the camera. I have been away to the mountains for a few days and took some photos but none turned out near as good as yours, I will be posting some of them later this week.
