The miracles of nature do not seem miracles because they are so common. If no one had never seen a flower, even a dandelion would be very beautiful to them. Young and old alike enjoy the experience of gently blowing on a dandelion and watching the seed float away. Dandelions are at least easy to grow,maintenance free,and probably the most recognized and talked about more so than any other flower.
