Yes, dandelions. And I know, for most of us they are nothing more than an irritating weed, that is almost impossible to get rid of. For young children, like my students, however, they are pretty flowers and the first real ones they've seen since last year. So they're special and have to be picked and given to someone. For every school day this week, it was me. I graciously excepted them and gave them a prominent spot on my desk, at least for a day. When I laid them to rest in the garbage can, I hoped this meant that there'll be a thousand or so seeds less on the lawn.
