Did the humble dandelion ever serve you, or your children, as a magic wand? It is so satisfying to see the sparkling fluffs fly off like sparks of magic as you wave your wand and run through the field or across the lawn into your own, private, magical world.
I love this glowing, golden flower. So many people consider them weeds, but children know. From the golden yellow dust that children can rub on their skins, through the white milk they ooze when picked, to the magical, fluffy seed heads, these are some of the most fun plants around 🙂
