Passing Season

Whilst walking around my garden on this crisp September morning, the remains of a dandelion seed head was a poignant reminder of the passing of the season.  It's seeds will be blown along by the wind and they will perish or germinate the following Spring depending on their fate.  Such a thing of beauty even during its demise.

It's so sad to look at flowers fading and everything turning into green in the garden :(
Have a good Sunday, hope it's a sunny one!

They are very beautiful. I'd leave more of them to seed if it weren't for the weeding!

This is what I love about Autumn all the seed heads of Dandelions, Poppies, Honesty and the majestic Cow Parsley. You have captured it perfectly in your photo.
