I took advantage of a spare moment this evening to duck out to my front garden with a view to capturing some more images of dandelion seed heads. Well, although the light was lovely unfortunately the breeze had picked up and the puff balls I spotted earlier were no longer quite so puff-ballish. Fortunately the light was right to capture a few images with alternative subjects instead.
We have some tall grass (I'm no good with most plant names - grass is grass to me!) that has some glorious, draping seed heads. They are so elegant - they remind me of a dancer's fingers caressing the air as they move.

I doubt they'll be a long standing feature of the garden, but I love the way you can see the mathematics of fractals in the curl of the fronds growing and unfurling.
