Dandelions get a bad rap. They may be considered a weed to some, but happen to be one of my favorite flowers. Because once the bright vibrant yellow flowers are done, they make a second flower - in my house we call it the wishing flower.
I think my son came up with the name - he went off to get one and came back with a "wishing flower" and it stuck. Both my kids love to make wishes and blow as hard as they can.
Sometimes they keep the wish a secret, just in case it might not come true if they tell someone. But most of the time, they share.
Today, Kaylee and I had some girl time, and went out to do a photo shoot. There were lots of wishing flowers, and she make lots and lots of wishes.
I love wishing flowers, but I don't need them. My wishes already came true.
