Make a wish - blow the dandelion!

For some adults, the dandelion is just a weed, but not for children. They are the flowers of childhood and play.
Dandelion seeds on a big puffball awaken in me pleasant childhood memories.
Do you recall your granny telling you that you can make a wish and if you can blow all of the seeds off the tuft in one breath, your wish will come true.
So, make your wish but don't tell! Now blow on the dandelion!
Dandelion clock-extreme close-up of dandelion seeds
Little girls and boys come out to play, yes
Bring your dandelions to blow away
Dandelion don't tell no lies
Dandelion will make you wise
Tell me if she laughs or cries
Blow away dandelion,...♫
- Rolling Stones

What was once a flower, became a delicate dandelion clock, to all children's joy.
