This week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is ‘All wet’. There are many dandelion clocks (seed heads) in my garden. Some people don’t like dandelions and treat them as weeds, trying to wipe them out from their neat lawns. Not me. Apart from the fact that I like how they look, they are good food for beesContinue reading “Damp Dandelion Clocks”
One lovely part of spring is the return of colour, something that we can miss over the winter. Some flowers are particularly bright and colourful, and can really lift your spirits.

I was surprised to find that there was another occupant of the flower – a spider – lurking underneath. The spider hadContinue reading “Dandelion Central”
This little bee was having a lovely time in this dandelion, getting liberally covered in pollen. I was glad to share his joy.
2014 has arrived! And with it, it has brought more rain and wind and general greyness.
