Alphabe-Thursday: D is for Dandelion

D is for Dandelion. 

Considered a bothersome weed by most, 
I find a dandelion to be very pretty.

  4. La, La, lovely and edible too! They are even good for you. My guy does not agree and sprays them like crazy. Your picture is perfectly lovely giving them due respect!

  6. I do think they are pretty...even in puff ball form. I don't like it when they take over my yard, but in someone else's yard...love them!

  9. It seems I am always rooting for the underdog so I too like the dandelion...except around my roses ;-)

    I love the fact that you can pick them up and blow on them and make a wish and their seeds scatter everywhere.

  10. I think most of us as kids thought they were flowers!! At least my mother did when we brought them to her!!

  11. It always seems that the first flower a child picks to give to someone is a dandelion. How can it be bad---when you see the precious excitement on a child's face when they hand you your special flower that they picked just for you :)

  12. Did you know that you can harvest the Dandelion root, dry it,grind it up and make coffee out of it. Never tried this but heard about it on a garden show once. It's probably very medicinal.

  13. I like them, too! But, I've not eaten one, though.

  21. I actually love dandelions! That happy yellow color always just takes me back to childhood and picking bouquet that my Mom threw out saying, "Oh, it's just weeds!" It was a good lesson for me. I take any dandelion any child or grandchild wants to give me and place it in a lovely vase!

    Thanks for a delightful link this week!
