May 14-16, 2010: Dandelions and rain, not our favorite things


As I was driving around on May 14, I noticed there have been a lot of dandelion seeds floating around lately. This inspired my photograph for May 14th, I believe the proper term for this is the "dandelion seed head."

When I see dandelions growing in the grass, it takes me back to when I was little. I use to pick up the "pretty flowers" and make flower arrangements! I also remember picking the dandelions, which were actually seeds, and blowing all of the seeds off.

Little did I know, I was creating more "flowers." Looking back today, how my dad most have loved to see me planting more weeds in his yard!

Over the weekend, everything was wet and gloomy. The following picture was taken on May 15, 2010 and shows the rain water that has been building on top of my dog's sandbox (yes, my dog has a sandbox. I am trying to encourage her to dig there, not in the mud!)

Here are photographs taken on May 16, 2010, showing that everything is still wet!

I really NEED a field of blooming dandelions to photograph. Hopefully somewhere close to Lawrence. If you know of one please post it below. TIA
