I had seen the term “dandelion clocks” hash-tagged on Instagram but I had no idea what it was so I thought I’d better look it up. If, like me, you didn’t know, apparently you can tell the time by the number of breaths it takes to blow the “clock” off the dandelion.
If that was actually the case it would have been very, very late with Freya in charge as she hasn’t quite got the hang of blowing yet. She does however know what “shaky shaky” means and was shaking the dandelions about and taking great delight in the seeds floating around her, as you can see from the photo I chose for this week’s #MySundayPhoto.
I was desperately trying to get a photo of just a dandelion but as soon as I found one a little hand would appear in shot. Don’t worry, I made her leave some for other children to enjoy.
