Pee i' beds

By helen&peter
Lots of these about at the moment. Years ago when we were kids, you used to get laughed at and called "pee i' bed" if you picked them.

Strangely enough, nowadays they are used by herbalists as a diuretic, so the kids in those days were right in a way after all.

What a wonderfully bright and happy looking image, cheered me up a bit. Stuck inside working when it looks like it is going to be a glorious sunset. That`s life.

Cheers for now

Beautiful flowers with vibrant colors and those brown lines on the borders of the petals increasing the definition of the image. Great composition with the flowers very well placed,

In Holland, they're called 'pissebedden', in Flanders 'pisseblomme'(piss'flowers'), in France 'pis-en-lit' meaning the same as in Holland, so, there must be something!!!
They are gorgeous in any language, butterflies love them, very well done, great comp and detail, click (*:*)

Beautiful detailed image of the common dandelion. It's lovely to see them on a picture, but they insist on growing in my lawn. I don't mind daisies, but I draw the line at dandelions.
