Waiting for the Wind
If dandelions were larger, they would be among the most cultivated flowers in the world. But as they are considered a weed, they are marginalized and eradicated. They are among my most favorite flowers and I am always happy to see them with their bright yellow faces. Once they turn to seed, they also make a feathery, beautiful array of parachute seeds. There are really a lot of different varieties of what we collectively call dandelions, but it doesn't really matter, they are all classified as noxious weeds. I guess I can claim that some of my best friends are noxious weeds.
