To me, dandelions symbolize the start of summer. Those beautiful weedy flowers blossom and in some cases cover entire fields of grass, bringing color back from a dreary muddy season. In my search for an end of summer shot, it dawned on me that the dandelions are few and far between this late in the season. I found that this beauty, already half taken by the wind, signified perfectly the end of summer.
This beautiful image by Monica Photography, shares the same consequence. Beautiful golden petals saying their last goodbye to summer and welcoming the new season.
