I made these photos yesterday in the city utility lot across the street. I got this done just minutes before the weed "exterminator" sprayed the area. The blossoms nestled down in the plantain provides an unusual image.
My friend, Chuck, at Secondary Roads posted a neat dandelion story in which he used the little plant as a metaphor for life. Indeed, not only is the bloom short-lived, but an unexpected puff of wind could blow this away!
It is said that "dandelion" comes from the French "diente de leon" for "lion's tooth."

ps: I know this is a bit more political than usual, but I have to get to the polls to vote the rascals out. Don't forget to vote.
