I seldom pass a dandelion seed head without picking it, blowing on it, and making a wish. I feel it is simply my duty to do so.
Dandelion is a useful plant in the garden, in the kitchen, and for animal husbandry. As a tap root it helps break up soil, as a medicinal it cures what ails you, and as a green it is a nutritious addition to the salad bowl, not to mention the flowers are edible and pretty also. Every part of the dandelion is useful.
This is a link to learn about our neighbor Dandelion from A Modern Herbal (my personal go to webpage for all things herbal)
And this my friends, is a time lapse of a Dandelion from flower to seed.
Now, your task today, go outside and see if you can find a dandelion. If you are lucky enough to find a seed head pick it up and blow it and make a wish! Anything is possible!
