I drove past a nursery and saw all these beautiful dandillions in full seed outside the fence.  I stoped and picked a whole lot and took them home and as you know they are really fragile so in  the transfer they loose a little and sometimes all their seeds.  This is what was left of one and I really enjoyed photographing it.
