Dandylion clocks

Sophie and Annie love dandylion clocks. I remember last year Sophie was blowing the little parachute seeds from the dandylion head and counting them. She looked at me in amazement..’It isn’t 17 o’ clock’.
‘No I agreed’.
‘The dandylion clock is wrong!’ she gasped. Then she thought for a moment. ‘It doesn’t tell the real time?’
‘No, my darling, it doesn’t.’
Tears welled up in her eyes and I cuddled her up close. Another childhood myth blown away like the seeds on the dandylion clock.
These pictures were taken this year. All thoughts of traitorous dandylion clocks forgotten.
