Remember as kids when the Dandelions’ yellow turned to these Puff-Balls as we called them, and we’d make a wish and Poof ~ blow them off in the wind?
And of course remember the jokes kids loved to tell- “What’s black and white and red all over?” (the newspaper..hahahahaha) The grandson recently bought a book of jokes and was having so much fun reading some of them to me. It brought back memories of the easy life and fun of a kid again and all the space out in front to look forward. I’d forgotten most of those kid’s jokes.

Peabea, this is such a fantastic shot of a dandelion puff! I love how soft it looks and the detail. You captured it perfectly. Sorry I’m so late getting here! It’s been a rough month.
Ooh, I like them both!
Dandelions are in full bloom here! They get such a bad rap when they really are pretty!
My 8 year old has a similar book so we’re enjoying the same kind of jokes! Love this image and how you’ve processed it, looks like a firework. 🙂
Beautiful! I love dandelions in black and white.
Both shots are lovely. Yes I recall blowing these and making wishes. It’s fun to look back on simpler, more carefree times.
Beautiful. I still have my Blessing telling me those kid jokes and having the future to look forward to.
Thanks for visiting Abrianna. They are so cute and precious as they deliver those jokes too. 🙂
a beautiful image…one that translates so perfectly in black and white!
Hi Kelly, love that you visited. Thanks 🙂
Wow, you just brought back memories, there was something about holding the dandelion under your chin. It’s a tease right now for me, I will have to look it up. Love the detail in your dandelion.
I’d forgotten that one Jen. Something about the yellow reflection on the chin, but I forget what it meant. 🙂
Love dandelions and you have done such a good job on this conversion
Thanks Barb. Playing with the photo editing software is so fun. Appreciate you visiting. 🙂
I love your picture! (Popping over from TT) 🙂
I love how the texture accented the depth of the dandelion. It’s really quite beautiful! Nicely done!
Thanks inspired….so glad you stopped for a visit. Appreciated. 🙂
Remember pulling the petals off daisies…he loves me, he loves me NOT. Thanks for the memories 🙂
Yes, many times destroying a pretty flower to find the answer to love. Also when twisting the stem off an apple and saying the abc’s to know the initial of the first name of the one you’d marry. hahahahaha
