    • Thanks very much! We just get told off by my husband if anyone blows them (or kicks them) in the garden. This one was swiftly removed as soon as I’d taken the photo!

  15. dandelions bring back the memories don’t they? for some odd reason we used to think they were alive and would bite you! no actually that was some other round fluffy ball from our childhood. :=) great shot.
