Dandelion Thoughts

by Tom April. 22, 2009 3189 views

Folklore says that blowing the seeds off a dandelion is said to carry your thoughts and dreams to your loved one. At least, so they say…
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Dandelion Barometers

"The dandelion is an excellent barometer, one of the commonest and most reliable. It is when the blooms have seeded and are in the fluffy, feathery condition that its weather prophet facilities come to the fore. In fine weather the ball extends to the full, but when rain approaches, it shuts like an umbrella. If the weather is inclined to be showery it keeps shut all the time, only opening when the danger from the wet is past."

Great shot of this beautiful little pest..I have the yellow flowers from it starting in my yard...pretty but they crowd out everything if you don't get them up which is sooo hard to do. "Toxic weeds" but they are fun to wish on and blow away.
