Take A Deep Breath And Blow!

While out shooting tonight I came across this large weed waiting for the wind to pick up and blow it seeds all over. As a child, I would pick handfuls and blow the tops off. I'd gotten in trouble once for it by my parents. They said I was creating more work for them by spreading the weeds all over. Oh well, I kept doing it. I'm sure you or someone you know has opened their mouth, taken a deep breath in, and it went into their mouth because they held it to close! Go ahead, visualize it, it's funny! LOL!

I remember blowing these as a kid.
Depending how many 'blows' to scatter the seed, determined the time.
Never knew the time where exactly; but great fun. :)

Great shot, David! The soothing green background is perfect for showing-off the delicate weed. Do delicate & weed belong in the same sentence? :-)
