The maligned Dandelion:

Gardeners exterminate them

Bees depend on their early pollen

Birds depend on the abundant seeds

Children love to blow the seeds like bubbles.


In Praise of the much maligned, ubiquitous Dandelion. What is not to like?

  1. Dandelion must be one of the most hated plants – and also love by anyone who doesn’t try to keep them out of a garden. For me the have always represented early summer. You captured a great shot, and I particularly like the way you have used a limited depth of field.

  2. Hi, lovely, soft colours and so true…..we eat the flowers, good for your health! And more important: the bees survival. Without the bees, no life.

Poet Rummager

I sell collectibles and art online and often find the things I've found have hilarious and at times, dark stories to tell. It's thrilling for me to be creatively random, so always expect the unexpected in the things I share with you.
