I've brought up to view dandelions as unwanted weeds, that must be pulled up, chemically destryed or somehow removed. I have driven myself nuts trying to do so. However, one day, while just driving, I saw a very large patch of land with grass, laced with the yellow-flowered dandelion. It was beautiful! yellow flowers on a green backdrop. What's wrong with it? What's the esential difference between cultivated and desirable marigolds or daffodils - and hated dandelions? Nothing, in my opinion! They're attractive. They're about the hardiest plants around. No need to water or fertilize. Prolific, edible. People make wine out of them. Why do we drive ourselves nuts trying to get rid of them?
