A sneak peek at a weed by Kevin Twomey


A sneak peek at a weed by Kevin Twomey
I remember as a kid, every summer, pulling dandelions out between the beautiful blades of green grass on the front lawn of my house on Long Island, cursing at them never to return. Little did I understand how tenacious that weed was or the role it played in a garden’s ecosystem. It wasn’t till last summer while exploring some flora for an Emeryville public art works project (images to be displayed fall 2011), that i discovered the beauty, the variety and the the complexity of that little weed.
The image in the June issue of Discover Magazine is just one of a series of photographs on the dandelion weed due to be completed this fall.
