Dandelion Clock

Dandelion Clock
The globe (receptacle) of the Dandelion is called the "clock"

It is said that the Dandelion is an excellent barometer..... So when the blooms have seeded and are fluffy .... if rain is approaching, it shuts like an umbrella. and if the weather is showery it stays shut and only opens when the danger from the wet is past.........:)

Annette, Claudia have particularly liked this photo

a friend of mine only knows this plant by the name "wet the bed"
as a child she and her friends would torment each other by trying to smear the milk of the dandelion on each other - hoping to inflict a result for later that night.
I sort of remember this folk tale from my childhood (both of us grew up in Sydney if that's relevant)
