IF- Time

Every time I see a dandelion clock I have vivid memories of childhood and telling the time by blowing the seeds away. However many 'blows' it took - that was the time. Did you do this too?

Remarkable! A wonderful design. I really like how managed the delicacy of the dandelion with the simple shapes.

I don't recall the time deal, just making wishes when I blew them. Now I have another thing to play with :)

Oh oh oh! This is so beautiful! Love the blues and greens and purples. Really delicate. I love the look of dandelions. So is that why they call them clocks???
