    Your photography is stunning.

    Guinea pigs can help with the dandelions – when we had them our neighbours would drop whole plants off at the back gate almost every day from March -November.

    Can’t help being impressed by such a brilliantly adapted plant, and it is beautiful too. Lovely photographs.

    Wow, great shots! Imagine if everyone of those seed heads germinated!!

    Greg – you’re so right, yet I still couldn’t resist giving it a blow! I hope the hard baked ground was impenetrable to the little blighters.

    Fiona – don’t see many guinea pigs passing my plot {wink}. I thought about making dandelion tea ones then realised it wasn’t worth as it tastes more like coffee (or perhaps mud!).

    Janet – and catapaulted back to memories of childhood at the mere sight of them

    Trevor – it would be my own fault if they did. Time will tell!

    VERY young dandelion leaves are OK in salads, but they quickly become too bitter, unless you are a rodent!

    I have never been a fan of dandelion tea. The flowers do make nice cordials and wine though. Foarger’s brewing is my Big Thing for this year.

And finally a fab spirally path made with mosaic stepping stones using recycled materials like bottle tops, buttons and straws (from a show garden @bbcgwlive on 2005) #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #gardenersworldlive #mosaicsteppingstones #mosaicart Beautiful show garden from @bbcgwlive 2005.  Wouldn't this make a fab addition to your allotment! Link in bio for more pictures 
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #allotmentgardening #paintedtyregardenplanters #paintedtyres #gardenersworldlive These fab painted tyre planters were part of a show garden at @bbcgwlive in 2005.  They're teaching me a thing or too about blog traffic as I try to get my head around SEO and why some posts have lots of hits and some have none.  2826 people have searched for painted tyres since I shared it in 2011 as a #wordlesswednesday post.  I've now added in some copy about the day and some of the other photos.  Just shows that adding useful titles to your images can be as helpful as writing relevant copy!

#gloucesterlife #indoorsnowplay #childhoodunplugged A funny little momento from our walk on Crosby beach - holding hands and gazing out to sea :0). #anotherplaceanthonygormley #nipitinthebudblog #visitingliverpool A conversation with @hoshistarhoshistarhoshistar today reminded me of a visit to Liverpool in 2010.  100 cast iron, life size figures spread out along three kilometres of Crosby beach and stretching one kilometre out to sea.  Spectacular.  It's worth checking tide times if you want to be able to walk along the beach.
