Surprise Guest

I was walking The Boy this morning and found this surprise guest visiting our place.

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.
