I was inspired to take a new dandelion shot (top) after visiting The Smitten Image a few weeks ago. Hillary had a beautiful close up. It is actually pretty amazing just how beautiful our pesty and determined lawn weeds can be. I even caught some blooming crab apple trees in the background.
But the bottom photo is my favorite dandelion stage. The puffy part. The seeds were also planted in my, "Great Expectations" illustration below.

This illustration is so detailed it is hard to see it all at this size. But the dandelion seeds are floating all around the scene. I wonder if this marriage will be as firmly planted, steadfast and prolific as the dandelion. The answer is in the wind...
