As a child,
I loved to find the “puff balls” that
sometimes appeared in our lawn.
I would pick them and enjoy looking
at all of the intricate stars.
But the best part,
was to take a deep breath,
make a wish
and blow as hard as I could
watching the pieces
like fairies floating through the air,
making my wishes come true!
Here, I try to recapture
that sense of wonder,
the magic as the “fairies” float away
bringing with them
and making our wishes come true!
These are hand colored scans of actual dandelions.
