First Seeds

I was in Lytham a couple of days ago and walking along the prom in the sunshine and blustery weather and I saw this dandelion: very low on the grass battered by salty sea water, it had already flowered and was in seed. In the last couple of weeks i have noticed one or two dandelions beginning to flower, but this is the first i've seen with a full seed head.

I picked a couple of leaves that are now being pressed in a book under my desk - ready to go into the Dandelion Archive.

Spring is here!
