dandelion seeds blowing away

Aside from being nice to look at, dandelions can be a lot of fun and joy for children--and adults! A well-known dandelion related tradition is to pick a dandelion that has the full white seed intact, and to 'make a wish' and then blow the seeds away. It's fun to watch the seeds scatter in the air. Wherever the seed lands there will be another dandelion. If you are able to catch a flying dandelion seed, it's also a tradition to make a wish.
