“It gives one a sudden start in going down a barren, stony street, to see upon a narrow strip of grass, just within the iron fence, the radiant dandelion, shining in the grass, like a spark dropped from the sun” – H.B. Stowe
Dandelions are vibrant, hardy, soft, and whimsical – a perennial, herbaceous plant that shares its brilliant yellow color, nutritious green leaves, and healing roots with us.
Dandelions grow all over the world, like a tangible uniting sunshine.
Although it has many attributes, my favorite stage of the dandelion life cycle when the flower changes into its white globular seed head –
who of us has not made a wish and blown the tiny parachute seeds into the future?
– this is childhood innocence at its best.
Enjoy each dandelion that lines your path, allowing memories of carefree times carry you, as a seed in the breeze, toward your dreams.
