The First Dandelion-Simple and fresh and fair from winter’s close emerging. Walt Whitman

Standard

A beautiful yellow flower that unfortunately is classified as a weed. It can be eaten in salads or make a delicious wine.

The word dandelion comes from the French “dent de lion” meaning “lions tooth” because of its long, coarse-toothed leaves.

Hearty and remarkably persistent, dandelions remain vital through out the year. It remains the most common and recognizable weed.

So, my lawn will not be perfect-I will not fret about the occasional pop up-I just pick it and stick behind my ear. Be happy!DSCN0626
