Humility in Yellow





I haven't taken any macro shots for a long time. I thought I better practice once more but it was a bit windy and I had no tripod. I got a few decent shots anyway.
(click on the photo for a slightly larger image).

I'm interested in the humble, happy dandelion right now because I'm drinking Dandelion Root Tea for it's medicinal properties. I'm not sure it will agree with me for the longer term as I seem to be having a few reactions but it is always good to try something new.

I thought the tea might help with my blood sugar levels but it is giving me stomachache and heartburn.
If you drink this tea please let me know what you've experienced.

If you missed my post about Baby Fidelis yesterday, please read and share the post widely. You can find it here 
The more people who know of the baby's situation, the more people who can help. Thank you so much for your help!

Joining in with Macro Monday 2Nature Notes,   i heart macro and Mosaic Monday this week.

  1. The pretty and humble dandelion, an early pollinator source. I've not had the tea but added the leaves to salad on occasion which can demonstrate the properties of a laxative. :-)
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday.

  8. Never had dandelion tea sorry. I once had jasmine tea I took two sips and my body went as heavy as lead and I went to pass out. My advice dont drink anymore it just might not suit you xxx

  9. I just learned that dandelions are one of the best plants for the garden as they pull the nitrogen up through the soil! Loving your shots here! Nicole xoxo

  15. Hi Joyful, You are doing just fine on your macro photography! :-) The yellow flowers are great. I think you know Sandi who has a blog called Dandelion Tea ... I have never tried that tea but if you find that it works well for you please let me know. I am short on time this morning as I've got to volunteer at the hospital today. Hope you have a great day!

  23. Beautiful macros. I have learned to enjoy the dandelions as being the only thing blooming for early bees. My neighbors get sprayed so they don't have them...I wish they weren't considered to be so bad.. Bunnies love them too...I will check out your other post..Michelle
