Jimmy Joe

Jimmy Joe in Deer Park

I’m not actually sure whether it’s just here in Ireland that we called the lovely fluffy seed heads of the Dandelion flower “Jimmy Joe’s” or “Jinny Joe’s” or do other countries use this term too. These things always remind of being a child running around trying to catch as many of them as possible, if it’s actually possible to catch flowers that is. I still can’t resist picking them and blowing all the wee seeds from the top and watching them float off in the breeze, something still very charming about it.

I took this photo in 2016 in The Deer Park in Mount Merrion late on a sunny summers evening.

Taken using my trusty old Eos 20D.
