Could it be grandfather, white-headed — I'm blown away! (5)


I believe the answer is:


I believe this clue is a double definition.

'could it be grandfather' is the first definition.
(as in a grandfather clock)

'white-headed i'm blown away' is the second definition.
(clock can mean the head of a dandelion)

(Other definitions for clock that I've seen before include "Time-teller" , "Watch" , "Hit" , "Timepiece" , "Notice" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
