Dandelion Days

Dandelion season is pretty much over now, but I still haven’t posted these photos. I am WAY behind with all the things I want to post. XD But too many ideas is better than no ideas, right? Right.

Anyway, I took these pictures when we went on a nature walk with our friends. It was such a beautiful spring day. Look at all the sunshine!

The bee was feasting on these vetch blossom. Looks yummy! XD

And now we get to the dandelion part. LOOK at all those dandelions! One corner of the field was absolutely covered in them! I’ve never seen so many dandelions in one place. O.o

Megan kindly obliged and blew some dandelions for a mini photoshoot.

The kids decided to have a dandelion contest: whoever found the dandelion with the longest stalk won. It was super fun to pick out the tall ones – some of the dandelions growing in the fields were two feet tall!

The little girls are so cute together. ♥

This is the lane that leads to my grandparent’s house. (They live just up the road from us.) Isn’t it so pretty with that huge old oak in the front?

Ahhh I love this maple in our front yard. It’s enormous and beautiful:)

Well, that’s about it for today! Which picture was your favorite? Does a dandelion contest sound fun?

I hope you enjoyed the post and thanks for reading, my dears. ♥

  1. Nice pictures, Allison! The white dandelions make for really pretty photos. What I don’t like about the puff dandelions is that when all the seeds blow away, they are kind of ugly. 😛
    A dandelion contest does sound fun, but I’m not sure how many really tall dandelions are around here.

    P.S. I’m sorry I haven’t replied to your email yet. We just got back from a fun but exhausting trip, and I’m also still trying to finish school. I will try to email you back soon, though! 🙂

    1. Thank you! 😀 Yeah, they really do. But I agree – they can get rather scraggly when you blow part of the seeds away. 😉
      Yeah! Well you could still do it even if the dandelions weren’t that tall – you only need to have one dandelion be a bit taller than the other to win. 😀 Hee hee!
      P. S. Oh, no problem at all! I can’t wait to hear about the fun but exhausting trip. 😀 🙂
