It is so much fun browsing old pictures! Ever so often I come across one that I cannot remember anything about – an orphaned memory of sorts! This is one such – I have no recollection of ever having taken it – although that can be oddly liberating coz now I’m free to make up any old story that takes my fancy 😛
I don’t know my plants at all! So I have no clue what this one is – but it looks to me like a seed, ready for take-off into a world fraught with air currents and insects and headed for an uncertain future. And if it seems unafraid (other than because it’s a seed I mean ;)), I guess it’s because it has no choice really does it? That’s what seeds do – they leave their mother plants and go off into Mother Nature to fulfill their destinies. I’m sure this one was no different – I wonder whether she made it (It’s altogether too pretty to be a he methinks :P)? It’s a big bad world out there and growing up is never easy to do! Probably more difficult for plants than humans in today’s world. And so I wish her Good Luck on her journey – I hope she finds safe haven when she lands; and fertile ground and the right kind of sunlight and enough water. She’s a brave soul!

That’s a great pic!
Thanks Anshu! I’m glad I found it 🙂
Wonderful photo!! Looks like a dandelion bloom (last phase) to me 😉
Thanks Irena 🙂 I thought it might be a dandelion but I wasn’t sure!
I’ll say it again: your stories ahead of the poetry makes them that much more special. I LOVE this one, probably because of your words above. I’m sure your son will love flying to London, largely because he’s unaware of the big bad world! We just finished traveling (hence my online absence of late), and our return flight was seriously bumpy at the end. I’m not a nervous flier, and it had me sweating. Anyway, there were young children across the aisle from me (2 and 4 I’d guess) who laughed through the literal ups and downs! Fortune does favor the brave…or at least the clueless 😉
LOL…love that last bit…clueless is right!! Thanks again 🙂 I was wondering where you were…missed your posts and am looking forward to them now your back!! I do hope you’ve brought full blown Spring back with you 🙂
