Photo-a-Day (Friday, 5th June, 2020)

Come on Irene get blowing to see what time it is.
A nice scene. I like wild flowers, even weeds, and it's odd how so many of them are yellow in Spring and early Summer, echoing the colour of the sun after Winter. Obviously these are over now but still bring pleasure thinking of childhood days when we called them "one-o'-clocks" and blew on them to "tell the time".
Different perspective, from a worms eye view. Nice.
a rare photo from a rare angle good one steve
The problem is that Dandelions choke everything else and the roots go very deep, same with travelling Buttercups all lovely in a meadow though.
Yes Dandelions and Buttercups are a nuisance but great for butterflies, bees and insects, to be fair, they look lovely from a distance in a field.
Irene, I remember blowing a dandelion & guessing the time, the things we did !
A photo that brings back memories Steve, lovely.
I once made a video of a Dandelion clock being blown
See the romping Horsetail there ...
Through trotting flowers blown,
A selfish sort if e're there was,
Shall we pro-Kind disown.
Hear a tale of former 'blue'
- right-hander 'Dusty' Gee -
A kind yet rather rambling sort,
One-forty-nine at Tea.
And oh his endless loping stride
Throughout a whitewashed mile,
Four-seconds-off the sooner best,
They surely made us smile.
I'm told he lives not far away,
His tales have gathered pace,
And come in oh-so many forms -
They're read in every place.
