Dandelion


After a brief stint as a flower, the dandelion closes and transforms; then reopens to display a dreamy cluster of seeds poised to take to the air on the slightest breeze. Adorned by tiny droplets of dew from the overnight condensation, the tiny aircraft spread out, slowly drying as they await the gust that will transport them to their next stop. There, with any luck, they'll germinate and grow into another dandelion plant.
