There’s something poetic about blowing dandelions into the wind, but there’s also a lot more to it.
Dandelion seeds fly through the air like none other. Using their parachute-shaped bundle of bristles, their seeds can spread over more than a kilometre, powered purely by the wind. This is essential for the plant to be able to spread out over large areas, which also helps explain why the plant is so common in many parts of the world.
For me it is more about the aesthetics, the delicate details and it's fragility when you get up really close; their simple beauty just blows me away.
