The Dauntless Dandelion

 I was on Dandelion detail this past weekend.
 Plucking and pulling them out by the roots...
 and as the song of the Dandelion Fairy sings;

With your spades of hoes and iron!
you can never drive me out~~~
Me, the dauntless Dandelion!
 
I gave it my best and the Dandelion wins!

I will share photo's with

Hi Shirley,

I would much rather view your dandelion photos than see them in my lawn ... lol. Great job!

You actually make dandelions look pretty! They grow way too well in our yard :(

Shirley,
You have made the ordinary dandelion look stunning in these photos today. I can just see you picking and plucking away. The pictures are so soft and pretty.

Love,
~Sheri

The detail here is amazing, Shirley! Actually, I've come to rather adore dandelions, as our yard is overflowing with them this year!! I even did research on their uses, and the tea sounds nice! :) Your photography is quite beautiful, I must say! I also love macro, and you do an exemplary job with it! This is my first time visiting from Flora Love. Have a wonderful weekend!

Beautiful macro shots so we can see those little curly cues at the tips of te petals.

I don't think they ever lose the battle, except at my house when I want to find some to photograph but the Hubby has killed them all! Your photos are just lovely.
