Blowing a Dandelion...

If you were to ask me about flowers related to my childhood the one flower I would name would be the Dandelion. My friends and I would often spend the warm afternoons laying on the grass, with a dandelion in our hands and we would take turns to blow and counting how many we could see before they disappeared and often would say that it would tell us how many children we would have when we grew up! Somehow I don't think 17 children is realistic!! Sometimes we would pretend the seeds were fairies and we had to catch one to be able to make a wish....There are many different superstitious reasons people may blow them but for me it was mainly to make a wish...

There is something about blowing a dandelion flower, the sight of the seeds flying through the air is beautiful and sometimes magical especially to a child and if you are lucky to have a very sunny day you sometimes can see the seeds shimmer in the air.

When my older two children were younger I taught them this and they loved blow…
