I used to believe that the black part inside tulips was a spider. I remember being terrified when tulips were open. :)

When I grew up, thorny bushes were called sticker bushes. So I always imagined Stick-on Stickers on the branches.

When I was little I had a nightmare that I was being chased by a walking tree. After I had that dream, I thought that every tree in the entire world was as truely evil as the one that chased me. Every time I saw a tree, I'd be ever so careful not to touch it for fear of it eating me.

My sister used to think that dandelions made you wet the bed. I used to chase her round the garden with them making her cry.

When I was little I asked my grandmother what a certain tree in her yard was called. She said it was a "Crate Myrtle Tree." I thought she said a "Great Turtle Tree." I constantly climbed it looking for tiny baby turtles. To this day I still call it the Turtle Tree even though I know better.

When my son was about 4 he informed me that the little yellow wild flowers growing on the side of the freeway was because somebody spread butter all over the grass the night before.

When I was younger, my aunt told me that the little white flowers that grew in patches across lawns would stick to my feet, and I'd be stuck there forever if I stepped on them. I believed her for teh longest time.

top belief!

Someone once told me that mother nature was the Earth. I jumbled this up somehow and got to thinking that mother nature was kind of like santa claus, only she would watch you when you were out in nature and would punish you if you damaged anything. I was terrified to go running in gym class, but would never explain to my teacher why i HAD to run on the mulch.

The worst story, however, was in the woods on a class field trip. I tripped and snapped a branch off of a tree. I was badly scraped up, but wouldn't stop screaming about how "mother's going to kill me now"

My yard used to be filled w/ long grass. My best friend at the time and I thought that this grass was wheat. Once we even tried to make bread by taking the grass, mixing it with water and leaving it to "bake" in the sun

When I was I young I believed that it was the trees that made all the wind. I used to lay in the grass watching the trees doing their work and especially on a hot summers day enjoy their special gift: a breeze!

As a little girl i was thinking that adults were growing like plants do. I even imagined how my parents were showing though the grey asphalt(ground) before my building. t

When I was younger I asked my aunt once how trees grow and she told me that there was water inside trees to help them grow. So I believed for the longest time that if you ever picked bark off of a tree water would come rushing out and flood the world!

because the tree's branches looked like roots,
I used to think that in the winter the "otherworld" underground had a strange summer! something to do with a alter-world. TOO many science fiction no doubt!

When I was a child I was told if I smell red-weed flower and put it very near my eyes I would go blind. And I still believe that. Never smell those flowers, even I like them .. just in case :)
