Yesterday I introduced Riley to his first Dandelion
When I first handed it to him to meet it
He quickly tried to eat it
Then crushed it in his hand and watched the fluff float away
Whenever I pass by a dandelion
The little girl inside me starts a crying
And I must pluck that dandelion and play
Make a wish and blow the fluff away
I always wish for the same thing
And my heart always sings as I watch the fluff float away
Next time you see a dandelion make sure you stop and greet it
Pick it up and meet it
Make a wish and watch your worries float away
A dandelion can grow just about anywhere they truly are a remarkable plant. Every part of the dandelion is useful: root, leaves and flower. It can be used for food, medicine and dye for colouring.
The dandelion is the only flower that represents the 3 celestial bodies of the sun, moon and stars. The yellow flower resembles the sun, the puff ball resembles the moon and the dispersing seeds resemble the stars.
