As little kids, my sister and I used to hunt through our backyard for the biggest, fluffiest dandelion “puffs”. Then we would close our eyes, make a secret wish, and blow the seeds into the air. The farther off the seeds were carried by the wind, the better the chances that your wish would come true (or so we believed anyway). Today, as I was watching my own boys playing with dandelion puffs in our yard, it brought back fond memories of childhood, and made me smile. I hope these photos will make you smile too.
