I was looking through photographs the other day that I had taken during the past year. I came across this photograph.
I took this photograph on October 25, 2012.
Do you recall the following folklore associated with the delicate seeds of a dandelion? It is said that if you blow on a white dandelion head and every seed scatters, you are loved. If some seeds still cling to the stalk, you are out of luck. Also, it is said that if you make a wish right before blowing on a dandelion, your wish just might come true. Others claim that the number of seeds remaining are how many years you have left to live.
I didn’t get a chance to blow on the dandelion head. A blast of wind blew the seeds away shortly after I took this photograph!

I had not ever heard that… I do know that every little dandelion ‘thingee’ makes a NEW dandelion…. SO–we try to dig ours up BEFORE anyone can blow them all over the yard… ha ha
i bet that means you will live many many years Linda; happy healthy years.
Wonderful shot, Linda.
