Taraxacum

Tonight I will share some pictures of Taraxacum or dandelions as most of us know them.

All of these pictures were taken during my trip to Jena, Germany which I am currently recovering from. I am a bit tired tonight as expected so will keep it simple.

Now to see if I can get to sleep.

    I can remember as a child picking the dandelions and blowing them into the wind. 🙂
