BEAUTY HAS NO LIMITS... YET is OFTEN VERY EPHEMERA

#abfav_white A personal favourite. You will find beauty in everything, just look!!! The back of a Dandelion seed head (clock). Children LOVE them! We don't like them in our gardens... AND YET: The dandelion plant is a beneficial weed, with a wide range of uses, and is even a good companion plant for gardening. Its taproot will bring up nutrients for shallower-rooting plants, and add minerals and nitrogen to soil. It is also known to attract pollinating insects and release ethylene gas which helps fruit to ripen. Taraxacum seeds are an important food source for certain birds. Another thing I love about being a photographer, you start looking at things in a 'different' way? About 'BEAUTY'.. artists sculpt, architects build, painters paint, photographers make images... the 'makers' and 'keepers' of beauty of moment? Enjoy and make the BEST of every day!

THE LIFE CYCLE of A DANDELION...

#abfav_favourite_spring_theme Also SPRING! I could ALSO have titled it: The Beautiful, The Ugly, The Soft and the Bald? LOL. I am doing another one of my 'FLOWER-STUDIES'. This time on the humble Dandelion. Taraxacum, the common name is dandelion (from French dent-de-lion, meaning "lion's tooth"). After flowering is finished, the dandelion flower head dries out for a day or two... The dried petals and stamens drop off, the bracts reflex (curve backwards), and the parachute ball opens into a full sphere. Finally, the seed-bearing parachutes expand and lift out of it. The parachute drops off the achene when it strikes an obstacle. After the seed is released, the parachutes lose their feathered structure and take on a fuzzy, cotton-like appearance, often called "dandelion snow". All of this happens in the time-span of 2 days!

IT'S NOT EASY BEING YELLOW... The Humble Dandelion.

MY IMAGES ARE FOR SALE ONLY FROM ME, DIRECTLY, see below! Another one of my 'FLOWER-STUDIES'. Dandelions are once again sprouting up all over, prompting the city,lawn-care specialists and amateur gardeners alike to once more declare war on the broad leaf weed.

JE SEME A TOUT VENT...

MY IMAGES ARE FOR SALE ONLY FROM ME, DIRECTLY, see below! FOR ANOTHER EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW. However, since the translation is not great, I give you the 'proper' answers HERE: magdaindigo.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/another-exclusive-inte...Interview in Russian here: rosphoto.com/a_flowers_magda_indigo The motto of Pierre Larousse, the namesake of Les Editions Larousse, and perpetuated in Larousse's publications is "Je sème à tout vent" ("I sow to all winds"). This motto inspires the cover art of Le Petit Larousse which typically features a female figure blowing dandelion seeds. The common name dandelion (from French dent-de-lion, meaning "lion's tooth") is given to members of the genus, and like other members of the Asteraceae family, they have very small flowers collected together into a composite flower head. Each single flower in a head is called a floret. Many Taraxacum species produce seeds asexually, where the seeds are produced without pollination, resulting in offspring that are genetically identical to the parent plant.After flowering is finished, the dandelion flower head dries out for a day or two. The dried petals and stamens drop off, the bracts reflex (curve backwards), and the parachute ball opens into a full sphere. Finally, the seed-bearing parachutes expand and lift out of it. The parachute drops off the achene when it strikes an obstacle.
