My mom has always shared your view of dandelions, so this was a particularly delightful read for me. You did a great job writing your descriptive paragraph from a child's perspective - except I don't think "specimen" is a word that most eight-year-olds would use. I love the final wrap-up, too. Great job!
A sweet reminder of childlike wonder. :-)

It is lovely to see the maligned dandelion come into its own. It truth, it is an amazing medicinal plant. Every part of it has a use . ..
I never could believe the dandelion was a weed either, but fact had to make me believe. Great entry! Thanks for sharing!
What a delightfully refreshing entry!

I agree - it's so sad that something beautiful can be considered a weed. I wonder if that's how Jesus felt when He was hanging on the cross. I loved the closing statement. It brought things into perspective. Great entry.
