Dandelions - weed or flower? The bane of the gardener's existance, I still find dandelions nearly irresistible. I know I shouldn't pluck its lolly shaped bloom and close my eyes and make a wish and blow... but how can I not?? Their delicate repeating patterns, the floating seeds like parachutes on the wind. Catching the slightest breeze, glinting in the sunlight, childhood memories calling me to blow and wish and enjoy their simple gift. I'll deal with the damnable weeds once the seeds have flown.
