Seed Head

Dandelions are to many a nuisance. Yet others use them as an herbal medicine or for making wine.  For me they are something else entirely. I simply like taking pictures of them. The composite yellow flower is beautiful in color and a great feeding station for early pollinators. I have several photos already this year with some type of bee getting loaded up on pollen and nectar. Then there is the seed head. That is when the Dandelion starts to look like Albert Einstein’s hair. There is never one seed head that looks like the other, sort of like snow flakes, well to me anyway. So here is a seed head I took on a walk this weekend.

I am a 55 year old guy who is asking questions about life like "what does it all mean?" and " how come hair will not grow on my head but grows real fast on my ears and back?" you know the deep stuff. I am married and have been for 24 years to the same wonderful woman( read into that: she puts up with me and I married up). I believe in Jesus Christ and that He died for all. The rest I am still working on.

  1. I noticed the first of the season’s dandelions this weekend. Maybe they’ve been out and it’s just that I’ve been holed up in my office for all of daylight hours. Einstein’s hair is a fun description. 🙂
