This bright yellow flowers turn into fluffy seed balls that distributes all around and ensures the next generation of dandelions. A favorite pastime of children of all ages in Iceland is to blow the seeds of the blowball and see it travel in a nice breeze.

The next time you are in Iceland - blow one and you will find your moods brighten and feel the warm, happy feeling of summer.
