  1. That is a very true statement that can be applied to more than just plants. Beautiful shot.

  7. Great shot. Just want to puff those seeds on their merry way!! Must admit we were expecting to see a photo of a horse. Do horses eat dandelions?

  8. no, no pooh, the only place for those things is in Baasha's mouth!

    that is the only redeeming quality to this yellow infestation - the horses LOVE them!

  10. Great quote and I love the shot. I call plants I don't plant volunteers. Sometimes I have volunteers that are plants people pay a lot of money for and sometimes they are traditionally thought of as weeds. As long as they aren't interfering with another plant I like or are too invasive, I tend to think of volunteer plants as gifts.

  13. So true! Every species has a purpose. My grandmother made a wonderful sorbet from it, and her sister made wine.

  14. Thanks ya'll!! It turned out kinda cool..my get on the floor shot~

    Anne...it worked..your breath from Norway took the little seeds further along in my garden!

    GREENSBORO DAILYPHOTO....Yeppers...bet you were thinking sometyhing like seeing a horse at a blog called 'ALLHORSESTUFF"!!!
    Yes,the equines, they love the Dandelions..it is good for cleansing the liver, not that they realize this fact! There is a "false dandelion" though..it causes a nervious system malfunction in horses..makes them not be able to walk and put thier hind legs down.

    Gray Horse...cute name for a horse..bet I know what the temperment was like!

    Carver...yes the ever familar "Volunteers"..I have a passle of blue ones!

    Eshter..yummy wine and sorbet!

  21. Love the angle of the shot and composition. Very well done.

  22. Lovely quote. My daughter would definitely agree - she LOVES to blow the seeds off "grandpa flowers", as she calls them.

  23. A beautiful monochrome picture, and I love the winnie the pooh quote, it's perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I, too, agree with Eeyore. Dandelions are hard to resist -

  25. I just have to blow on one of those if I see it. It's an extreme temptation! Nice shot, by the way.
