Dandelion Life

I love Dandelions, especially at this time of year! When there are not a lot of flowers about the Dandelions pop up all over the place providing a great source of food for insects. They brighten up the place too. Not to mention the enduring attraction of photographing Dandelion clocks.

Yesterday I kept nipping out into the garden to see what I could see and the Dandelions were the centre of the action.I love this photo of a Honeybee on a Dandelion 🙂


Here’s another Honeybee – this one has already been very busy and has full pollen sacks:


Also enjoying the Dandelions were various hoverflies:

I like to take photos and write words ...


  1. I love dandelions and simply don’t understand why people scorn them. Up here in Canada we’re not at the dandilion stage yet. We have a hard and long spring in Montreal. However, I have seen a couple of hardy bees. Yours are beautiful

  2. My first dandelion opened in the garden today. You have persuaded me not to dig it up just yet. Not sure I will let it go to the clock stage though. I love photographing them too, but just the wild ones.
