Living with Dandelions

These plants are incredibly tough and omnipresent. We spray with chemicals, burn them and attempt to pull them up breaking off enough taproot so they can regenerate. How can you not admire them?

You can eat the leaves, make wine from the flowers and grind the roots as a form of coffee. Try to do that with your perfect lawn of grass leaves. And they really are quite beautiful.

Bees love the dandelionThe bees were happy, I expect a bumper crop of seedheads

I took these photos on May 14, 2015 using one of my favorite lens
