After and Before

By handlerstudio  
A Dandelion, a beautiful Spring flower both in its yellow stage, and as ephemera, about to blow its seeds in the wind. I think it is a weed because we cannot control it. Many people love to eat its greens. I think that the flower at this stage may be more beautiful than in its yellow form. Here, after and before.

Thank you all for your votes and comments on my fiddlehead photos.

Yes I like V2 best. This ‘weed’ has alway fasinated me from a child.
They said if you picked them you’d wet the bed.
Blow on them and you make fairies that fly away.
The lacy tops are intriguing as they are so delicately compiled.
Excellently take too Peter…..WinkWinkWink
