I got to thinking about dandelions. You see them  on lawns in the spring. Some people get upset and try to kill them. Others pick the leaves and cook them to eat. Some even make dandelion wine.

I was thinking about how dandelions go from the yellow flower to the fluff that holds the seeds. It is the wind that carries the dandelion seeds all over and new dandelions grow. One reason dandelions are hard to get rid of is that their roots are long. They are stubborn little plants.
