Dandelions keep popping up ...

The yellow colour of the dandelion symbolizes spring to me. I know many lawn-owners hate it, but I adore it. And it can't be stopped. It is everywhere. It even grows out of rust.

Locks and fences can't keep it in.

Just mind that you look carefully before you sit down ...

PS Have a nice week-end!

Det er deilig å se de første gule for da vet vi at våren er her.

here the dandelions come out after the daffodils have died - never seen one growing in a lock before.

Your dandelions spring up in the strangest places. hmmm . . .

I even have fluffy dandelions on the body of my HP notebook computer, the Dandelion model.

Your chairs all in a stack are beautiful, with or without the flower.
Enjoy spring.

I'm with you on the dandelion. Saw a lot of them in the Smoky Mountains last week and they just screamed Spring is Here. I think I like the picture with the chairs the best.

Lekre bider ... joda, jeg har sett løvetann vokse opp de mest utrolig steder, men nå tror jeg du tuller litt med oss, hehe ..... artig komponert og et skikkelig lyspunkt i gråværet vi har her om dagen!

Ha en riktig fin helg!

The dandelion blossom traveled to some great spots. I love rust...and to combine it with the vibrant color of the flower is genius!

You're making me laugh out loud! Your sense of humor is the same as my Norwegian husband.

I like the yellow blooms, but not the plant tha follows!

Lotta said...

Wow, vilka snygga bilder du komponerar!!!!precis sådana som jag gillar! Det är så härligt när man får fram skönheten i det som många tycker är det "fula"
Ha en fin helg.

En serie med herlige bilder!

Banjo52 said...

I've always thought dandelions got a bad name. Nice juxtapositions here, Rune. It's as if those backdrops really need something bright yellow and soft.

truels said...

Dandelions are everywhere - also down here. And I love them to! This is a nice way to celebrate all these lovely yellow beauties ;-)

Gry said...

Stilig! Og så hardføre som de er så dukker de jo bokstavelig talt opp over alt!

Rizalenio said...

Love the depth of field in your first photo. Oh, dandelion, they are so refreshing to look at. I'd love seeing them everywhere.

Have a great new week ahead. :)

Darlene said...

Now these I really understand and adore. I maybe am a bit crazy, but I always loved dandelions, even in my lawn. (My Navajo Indian housekeeper that lived with us for quite a few months, used to go out every morning and pick the dandylions for their greens, nice fresh ones, for salad, so I've even enjoyed eating them)

These photos were truly delightful!

And, you are right, dandelions are definitely a sign of spring!!

Lara Neusiedler @ Uproad said...

:)) we have a huge garden of them. they stopped looking nice the moment they invaded our roses hahah! nevertheless, awesome photos, as usual!

EG CameraGirl said...

Ah, yes, dandelions sure do get around, don't they? :)

Petra said...

Dandelions are everywhere now, so many little gold suns! I particularly like one place in the neighbouring village where the road is densely lined with them on both sides.

Anne said...

Ditt første var et oppsiktvekkende bilde, kontastene!! og du vet jo at den rusten tiltrekker meg så med sin helt særegne farge, enormt Rune, og dett første her var ditt beste :-)
