Dandelions

As spring approaches, the vacant grounds are covered by Dandelions, I'm still plaing and experementing with my camera, after several shots this is the best I could come up with.

Here dandelions are considered a weed and people go to great lengths to get rid of them. They do make for good pictures.

Thanks for this photo - it reminds us that the most normal and ignored items in our environment may actually be as complex and spectacular as great works of art or engineering - if we only slow down and look at them.

That's right, Benjamin, If we'd only slow down and look at them...

Simply beautiful, Destitute Rebel. :)

Dandelions are wonderful. A sure sign of summer here when they are up and blooming. We used to eat the green leaves when I was a kid during the war. And when they bloomed yellow it would be May here and school would be let out for the summer.

You did a good job on the photograph.

Paula Thank you.

Kitty thanks for stopping by and the warm welcome, hope to show you more of lahore.

In Pakistan Dandelions are considered wild flowers and grow only in unused spaces usuall big grounds, & Mosque or church lawns this one was from a church lawn.

Crazycow thanks.

Benjamin madison, thannks for stopping by, i totally agree with you, sometimes the most insignificant things which are ignored can be so beautiful.

Fenix, Thanks.

Alaa, I'm glad you liked it, thanks for stopping by.

Brian, thank you, it is for sure a very pretty nuisance.

Gizelle, when we were kids we used to pick them up and blow them, in this part of the world they are called "old womans hair" and when you wish and blow at them, your wishes are granted.

Thanks oldmanlincoln, havent had the greens of the dandelions but there used to be another wild plant with them which looked like the four leaf clover and was tangy.

Strange to see common "pissenlits" (dandelions) and mustard flowers with more exotic pictures for my French eyes.
Welcome !
