TIME FLYING FROM THE CLOCK

I hope you don't feel cheated but I want this to have its own post.

Dandelion clock with most seeds already gone, the ones which remain shaking in the breeze. Pictured from below against a deep blue sky.
March 16th 2013

The dandelion clock is shaking its head in a mild breeze, sending its seeds spinning.

We'll pay a closer, more focused attention to these seeds in another post - to the bright yellow flowers of dandelions too. But I feel the spirit of the season in captured here and I want it to stand alone.
