A very lovely shot, Bill - Thanks for laying down in the grass for this one!
Bill Phillips: The laying down was easy, getting back up was rather less elegant
Super shot, Bill, nicely presented too.
Bill Phillips: Thank you Frank
Oh! And yes, I saw the ant! Great catch!
Bill Phillips: Well done E

Bill Phillips: The humble Dandelion much loved by children for the "clock"
I think Mother Nature laughs when we say "weed," Bill. smile

This series will be a winner for me - they are only weeds when in the wrong place
Bill Phillips: Very true Lisl. My garden being a good example

Ah! Now, I have a fine crop of these, too! Or rather I did until the combination of the weedkiller and the dustbowl conditions took effect.
Bill Phillips: They are easy to grow so I don't know why we don't all have a garden full of them

Bill Phillips: I didn't know you cared
Can you not put them all up on one day and get it over with.
Bill Phillips: Listen sunshine I lay down on the ground to take this and then had to struggle back up again. So I have suffered for my art and now it is your turn grin
Some weeds are very attractive, this is one of them.
Bill Phillips: Weeds are only plants growing where you don't want them Brian
What a lovely image of this pesky weed, Bill. Your effort was well rewarded.
Bill Phillips: But well all secretly love dandelion clocks Beverly

i must admit my oversight on your title for this

you have captured it from an angle that makes it so elegant that i did not know it was a dandelion

i came back to this image after commenting on the dandelion, gone to seed

when i noticed it was entitled, weed 2, i thought i'd missed one of your posts

amazing what you've done here
Bill Phillips: Thanks Sherri.....I was lying down to take this....not something I do very often as getting up again is not as easy as it used to be grin
