Today's Flowers



The humble dandelion - only a wildflower, but look at the detail in it. So pretty - and some of our fields are yellow with them at the moment. Sign of summer maybe?




and, of course, once the flower is over the seed head is so distinctive and delicate. The dandelion clock!

I must have a very summery garden then. My neighbours (and the council for that matter) don't like summer...

We do so take our wild flowers for granted don't we.
They deserve a closer look from time to time.

I have added your link Anne, with my apologies for being so late. I have had company and haven't been on the computer much.
