In the wind

Puffy white clouds tumble past as a wave of steel blue, layer upon layer floats in the eastern sky. A badly needed rain teased us with passing droplets yesterday afternoon--falling in torrents in the night. By noon, the wind had dried all but a few puddles in the grass.

In the lush green pasture, the dandelions have turned their yellow heads to seed.


Ballerinas, toes pointed, reach out to catch a breeze.











I understand why there must be this rhythm of spring-
Wind and rain and wind, again.

I love to watch birds pull those fluffy seeds from their moors. They then take the seed in their beaks and chew off the seed and let the fluff drop. They look cute with those fluffy sprigs sticking out the side of their beak.

What great shots. The mechanisms of the dandelions are really interesting. Plenty to learn from there.
