I remember the first flower I ever received from my sons…

I can still see their faces, anxiously waiting for my reaction, happy and proud of themselves.

I can still feel the pure joy that bubbled up in my heart when they handed me a single dandelion puff, half crushed and a little bald from their enthousiastic grasp.

Dandelions will always bring me smiling happy memories, just as every mother who was fortunate enough to receive this precious offering…

  • Thank you Sarah! The f/1.8 aperture really helped with all that powdery softness. :-)

    Lovely lovely work Jo, and such a beautiful story behind this too!

  • Thank you Ursula, glad that you like it! :-) I wanted to add a texture, but I though that it would compete with the delicate one of the of the flower, so I only cross-processed in Lightroom ,using a preset as a basis, and tweaking it a bit to my liking.
