A Quick Glance At Dandelions

Dandelion is a flowering plant with attractive bright yellow flower that transformed into a stunning intricate Dandelion seed clock as it progresses over time. Although, for some gardeners, this flowering plant can be one deceiving beauty because they are widely considered as weeds and a complete nuisance in most gardens and lawns. But at the same time, Dandelion have beneficial purposes for both in culniary and medicinal uses. Dandelion is such a popular plant that some places even celebrate a Dandelion Day every year!

The Dandelion clock is one of the most popular subject of photography in a Dandelion plant, but the seed components of this clock is so intricate and delicate that a mere blow of a wind against it will burst this clock open, each seed as light as a feather, easily spreading each seeds in the air, which when this happens, you can definitely expect more Dandelion weeds growing in your garden or lawn the following year! For flower garderners and lawn people, knowing that you just planted and spread more Dandelion seeds in your yard is a complete nightmare.
If you see a full and undisturbed Dandelion clock in your garden or lawn, pick it off from the plant slowly and place it in a solid container or trash can carefully, making sure that you wont be shaking it off and dropping the seeds all over.

A lot of times, many of us are so focused and amazed by the beautiful flowers that the plants produced that we sometimes failed to notice the beauty and characteristics of the plants foliage or leaves.

Green is the most common color of leaves, although some leaves changes in color varying from yellow to orange, pink to dark red depending on the type of plants and the season.

Flowers are naturally beautiful and commonly admired and easily noticed by many. But if you will study closely or check out the foliage of each flowering plant as well, you will see how each flower plant have their own unique leaves, different sizes, shapes and textures.

The photographs are showing some images of leaves taken from different types of flowering plants including iris, snowball, and lilac.
