Friday flowers

Dandelion – some see a weed, others see a wish. Anon

Ok – not quite a flower by the time it gets to this stage. To most gardeners, the humble dandelion is a weed. They may look fine in a meadow but ‘not in my back yard’. The bad news for the gardener is that the seeds are not dormant and can germinate immediately in the same year (fact). But to a child, these dandelion clocks have two functions; either for telling the time (questionable accuracy) or for making a wish (questionable effectiveness).

Do you see a weed or a wish? Or a clock?

  1. Flaming fantastic Friday photoshop flourish! 😉
    I like what you’ve done with both of these images. Each with distinct qualities. Interesting to see how with a bit of careful editing a photograph can be made to look so interestingly different. I like them both. With the second image my eye saw the dandelion set among lots of gear wheels from clocks and then realised that what my eye took for gear wheels is far more organic!
    The first is more subtle with it’s editing and very effective too. Your choice of layers in both works really well and they are very engaging images.
    Will we be getting a super Saturday or a sunny Sunday?
    Best wishes
    Mr C 🙂

    1. Thank you for your kind comments Mr. C. These were mainly the result of messing about with apps on my IPad. Yes you will be getting a super sunny Saturday surprise. Sunday may be sunny, snowy, sacred, structural or spectacularly statuesque!
