For what some consider a weed, dandelions sure have a variety of beautiful sides during their life cycle.
I saw some like this last week after it rained and I had to stop and take a look (no camera) … love the symmetry.
It looks like a dandelion, and yet it doesn’t. Isn’t it funny, that we don’t think of plants capable of the kind of individuality which we possess – but why not? Perhaps this one just wanted to stand out a bit!
I’m still not sure what cause this look. At first I thought that perhaps the top part of the dome had already blown away, but nearly all of the seeds at the center still seem to be there. I guess I’ll just take it for what it is; pretty.
Great photo! Seed heads are wonderful, aren’t they! I’ve taken lots of photos of them in the winter when they are decorated with snow flakes. My favourite seed heads are the ones in the daisy and poppy families.
