What's With the Dandelion?

The dandelion is so many beautiful things. It's a flower that transforms (my favorite) into a wistful cotton ball. Precious gifts to mothers. Grants wishes when blown. Carries seeds on the wind. Strong, resilient, and surprisingly, a weed. Available for everyone to enjoy.
