Flower of the Day: April 26, 2021. Seed parachutes

The wonderful world of dandelions. This bright yellow flower is dreaming of when it’ll become a white fluff ball with a very important job for its species: seed disperser. It’s also called seed parachutes.

P.S. Dandelion fuzz balls remind me of how our lives would be much brighter if we generously shared encouragement like these seed parachutes.

Thank you Cee for hosting this FOTD challenge and thank you readers for visiting my blog post! I hope you all have a fabulous start to a new week and enjoy the longer sunny days.

Welcome to my blog! My name is Esther and I'm so happy you are here. I'm an avid nature photographer and a daydreaming thinker. My posts revolve around photos of nature's beauty, homeschooling adventures with my 2 kids, sporadic reflections on my child's heart condition, Bible reading reflections, gardening feats, and other mish mash things. Hopefully you'll leave encouraged, pensive, or smiling at the simple things of life. Thank you for stopping by and hope you'll find some interesting posts to read!

    1. Thank you Anita! Glad you stopped by.
      Kids and I are doing well. We’re just doing our usual thing and looking forward to summer vacation. This semester was one too long under COVID conditions. I think everyone else is feeling COVID fatigue!
      I hope you got your vaccination!!

      1. No I have not gotten my vaccine. Even though my age says I could have gotten it first, I am waiting until fall. Just feel like they have gone too fast. The vaccines don t keep you from getting the virus, they just keep you from dying from it. That should be enough incentive, I know. Stubborn.

      2. I know what you mean about having your doubts. The trial period went too quickly and not much is known about long-term effects. Maybe we’ll have reached herd immunity by fall and you wouldn’t need the vaccine after all! We’ve come safely this far…stay well and healthy! Have a great start to a new week and God bless. 🙂

    1. I had no idea it was a solid fuzz until you mentioned it. Maybe the car parked close to it shielded it from the wind or passersby.
      It was interesting to see the dandelion stage next to each other like that.

      1. Some of the fuzzballs (as we called them back in the day) seem to be hardier than others. Our lawns and the Park lawn are a carpet of gold thanks to all the dandelions.
