Dandelions: WPC

I’ve recently handed in two term papers and, as if on cue, the skies darkened and the temperature dropped into the low 60s. So on top of the let down at the end of a hard year, I’ve got a sinus headache that won’t quit. Not that writing the papers, finishing the papers, or having this headache have stopped me from baking, they’ve just stopped me from blogging about it. So stay tuned for some brilliant baked goods (plus at least one crafty project). But in the meantime, here’s my entry for the latest weekly photo challenge: Evanescent.

This is the same photo as above, but in black and white. Because why not?!

Dandelion clocks, as they call them in the UK (I don’t know why), are the epitome of fleeting. One gust of wind and the seeds fly away.

On a heavier note, life itself could be considered evanescent, at least in the grand scheme of things. Even gravestones, something meant to be so permanent, are worn away with time until dandelions–which will eventually turn to dandelion clocks–grow out of the broken stones.
