Dandelion and Barn by themapper Dandelion and Barn by themapper
Such a ramshackle old barn. Such vibrant and fresh flowers. Together, they make such an interesting contrast.

What a wonderful idea you have there with your features. Thanks for including me. :)

Taking this particular picture was fun. I got to lie down deep in the grass and dandelions to take the shot. When I got up, I was covered in yellow-orange pollen!

And yes dandelions are quite edible.

thank you, and you're welcome :D

that must have been wonderful! i always think that summer has arrived when i see the dandelions.

yum yum. the dandelion milk is quite horrid though. and the leaves get bitter when they're old. when i was a kid we used to dare each other to taste the milk and try to trick each other to eat old leaves saying they were wild sorrel. :XD:

<shocked looks in your direction> that was a wicked thing for a kid to do ... hahahaha!

yes, it was very wondrous to lie there in all that fantastic yellow, with the warm sun coming down on me and the bees buzzing all around me everywhere. a small piece of heaven, i think. and it comes every year. i am so lucky.

What a wonderful barn, in particular with the bright blue sky and the dandelions in front. Looks very friendly. Nice composition too (except for cutting off the top bit of the roof). From a purely practical point of view, I'd have preferred this in a slightly smaller version, so that one doesn't have to zoom around that much in all directions (I generally prefer to be able to view photos on my screen in one piece :)). This would also have made the barn look a bit sharper. Other than that, I really like this!

Hm. I have had several comments to that effect, about the size, I mean. I may re-submit it, in a smaller size, to help with this. Thanks for the very thoughtful comment!

I guess most people like viewing pictures as a whole, in particular if detail doesn't matter that much (at least not as much as it would, say, in a macro shot of something very tiny). And I'm using a rather small screen too.
