Urban Nature Study
A Dandelion puffball might be the size of a ping-pong ball, but this one is almost as big as the "Spaldeen," the pink rubber Spalding ball so vital to the old game of stickball..
How times change. I just found out online that instead of scouring the street for a suitable stick, you can now buy one on Amazon for $46.98, or two Spaldeens and a stick for $61.82!
I think I'll stick to nature study.
