Explore Outdoors ~ Growing Old


One day the field is filled with yellow composites ~ dandelion-like blooms atop tall, hairy stems. Within days the petals fade and the flowers go to seed. Even as that's happening, new buds are getting ready to bloom. 

Look for aging flowers in your yard and around the neighborhood. Take a photo or draw an aging plant that you find. What do you notice?


  1. It seems early for that to be happening. Thanks for an interesting photo.

  2. Wow—that's a lovely photo that captures that process so well! Thanks for sharing!
