Dandelion – some see a weed, others see a wish. Anon
Ok – not quite a flower by the time it gets to this stage. To most gardeners, the humble dandelion is a weed. They may look fine in a meadow but ‘not in my back yard’. The bad news for the gardener is that the seeds are not dormant and can germinate immediately in the same year (fact). But to a child, these dandelion clocks have two functions; either for telling the time (questionable accuracy) or for making a wish (questionable effectiveness).
Do you see a weed or a wish? Or a clock?
