146. Dandelion Clock (Aesthetics 5)

DSC00966

The sense of wonder we have already spoken of continues to inform all the other ways of seeing, and perceiving beauty, finding something aesthetically pleasing, is no exception. How perfect is the sphere of a dandelion clock, and how symmetrical and yet tiny, a little planet of starbursts! These are plucked up swiftly by most gardeners, knowing how hard the plant is to remove, but for me they are globes of soft wishes, and delightful to look at.
