It's already Spring here in Seattle. My son's have already picked Dandelions while we were out walking. This Dandelion planted itself in a pot that I've had sitting outside. Brother noticed and said "Who planted that in there?" I just said, "I didn't, I wonder how it got there." That was met with silence. Then a few seconds later he said "A seed rode it's little parachute and planted itself there." That is directly from the Enki nature tale - science story - "Golden Round Faces". I had read it to him for the last two springs with no discussion, but it was sinking in! I read it to him again today after we saw the dandelion.
