Dandelion Tower

Dandelion Tower, originally uploaded by e s c h e r.

Today the morning is bright and warm. Warm enough for the dandelions to open their flowers.

This sculpture is constructed from sections of reed grass, pinned with thorns with a chain of hazel rings hanging down, each with a dandelion held in the middle. Everything was collected nearby.

There was a light breeze and it was making it very tough trying to get this sculpture to stand up long enough to take its picture.

Now Spring has arrived and my normal trick of picking a beautiful spot to take a photo and then building something is proving to be more difficult to do as the materials I am now using are in fields, woodland and parks. It is more difficult to take a striking photo in these places. Over the next few months I will have to try and bring my photography up to the same level for these places.
