A wish to build a dream on

If you can blow all the seeds from a dandelion globe with one blow, you are loved with a passion.

If a few remain, your lover has reserveations.

If many remain, you are loved very little.

Or, perhaps you just have weak lungs.

My contribution to the Weekend in Black and White community.

Beautiful image! I love the softness of the background.

Fantastic macro shot Julie. I have never heard these words matched with the dandelion globe before. Is this a tradition attached to this flower or is this something you have created? Very nice indeed.

Julie said...

Nope. Not a jools-ism. A real hand-me-down.

... except for the last line ... becaise I don't truck with all that other romantic crap!

Beautiful capture!

We used to "tell the time" by blowing dandelion clocks. It was never very accurate, but a lot of fun!
Your photo is full of light.

I've never heard that before. In future I shall either blow harder or remember to choose one that is very "ripe".
