It Can't Be a Dandelion! by 


Canon Powershot SX20 IS
Captured in Sherman, Texas, USA

FEATURED IN:

Texas dandelion captured in Sherman, Texas, USA – a wildflower that I find to be more beautiful than many garden flowers. If I see one, I have to sit down and photograph it. This one was catching the morning sun (what there was of it) on this cloudy morning.

Part of the sunflower family they are found blooming from March until May over the eastern half of Texas. It is different from the common dandelion in that is is larger and taller. The Texas dandelion has unique dark purple to black “anther tubes” in the center of the flower. It’s lemon-yellow flower heads are one to one and a half inches across.

Found in pastures, along roadsides and in lawns these “false dandelions” have a milky sap. Just like the common dandelion, when the seed heads are dry, they look like puff balls and are easily blown apart by the breeze.

I am an amateur photographer who takes a walk nearly every day with my camera shooting whatever interests me.

When I get home I peruse my images until I find the ONE that will go into my Redbubble portfolio that day.

Please stop by and see what I added today.

    Beautiful composition Aprilann. I will accept it to WFNA but ask that you add the location in Texas where you captured the image.

  • I knew I’d forget something. I’ll add that right away.
