Weed or what?

They start out like this...

- and continue like this.

Many people consider them a pest and a weed. I look upon them as beautiful representatives of spring.

Enig i det,de er jo det første tegnet på vår,så jeg blir glad når jeg ser disse første vårsprettene som lyser så fint opp.

Ingenting er så vakkert som et jorde full av løvetann! Nydelige makro - det første er jo helt i en klasse for seg selv!

Wenche said...

Løvetann er vårteikn og det likar eg:) Begge bilda var nydelege, men det første var heilt fantastisk! Ha ein fin dag!

Svein said...

Pent! Og selv neste trinn før frøene begynner å fyke rundt er pent, men....

They are wild , sunny, strong and they always come back every year for spring. Many reasons for some to be jealous!(especially when looking your so wonderful pictures!..)

So far, I haven't seen any of them poking up here but it's just a matter of time. I love to feel the soft centers when they are just beginning to bloom -like in your first photo there. Seeing them in pictures like these, how could anyone possibly think of them as weeds?

Ah they are a good few of them in our garden Rune, love them when they turn to seed, great pics then too.
Grand shots.

Monica said...

Ja, når man ser dem på denne måten er de vakre...;)

You would love my back garden...there are many dandelions to be seen...most of them have gone to seed now, with the lovely white puffballs.

These photos are wonderful...maybe I should invest in real macro lense.

So you show me the beauty of nature from a bug's eye view. Who knew the humble dandelion was arrayed in such glory?
Bravo!

Dagrun said...

Flotte fotoobjekt, men definitivt "weed".

RuneK said...

Av med hatten for disse Rune, eksemplariske bilder!
Alt tyder på at det er vår nå :)

Disse to var meget meget bra. Blinkskudd begge to etter mitt skjønn :)

Marka said...

And others have the outlook that if it grows on their property and is colorful, that's less gardening they have to do.

I really like the perspective on the first one, with it only being open part way.

Dick said...

Wonderful, I really like the first one, nice work.

Babooshka said...

Its a beauty and for me wild and wonderful weed or not.

Ida said...

Ugress eller ei, nydelig fotografert!
Det første bildet, der Løvetannen holder på å springe ut, er utrolig fint! :)

PERBS said...

Nice shots of the dandelion. If you rememebr, I had some not too long ago with a bee ont hem. People either like them or hate them or both!

For a weed, I've heard it made into Dandelion tea; and black bears in the Canadian Rockies like to eat them.
