In all of my years of having the privilege of being around children, both as a teacher and a mother, one common theme I have noticed is that children do not think of dandelions as weeds. To me, this is a poignant illustration of their innocent perspective of the world around them.
So...why are dandelions NOT weeds???
Glad you asked...
- They are bright and yellow. Why would God make weeds bright and yellow??
- They are abundant and everywhere - ready to be picked and given to a very, very lucky adult as a bouquet.
- You can blow the seeds and they go EVERYWHERE!!! How could a weed be so much fun??
