Did you ever blow away the dandelion seed heads chanting one o’clock, two o’clock, three o’clock, four?
I had vague memories of doing just that a long time ago. So I looked it up in Google and this is what I found.
I picked a dandelion clock
And I held it near my nose,
I blew the pretty fluff away
And counted up my blows.”It’s one o’clock, it’s two o’clock
I gave a great big puff,
“It’s three o’clock, it’s four o’clock”
Away went all the fluff.
My dandelion clock was right
For mother called to me,
“Come in and wash your grubby hands
It’s nearly time for tea”.
I also found these dandelion sculptures at Canberra Floriade.
