Not me! I love dandelions.
So cheerful! 🙂
Dandelions really are a pretty flower. Ours in the south are a little lazy and less aggressive.
I wasn’t aware until recently how important they are to pollinators, too!
Uh-oh. I smelled the computer screen and I’m sneezing now. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon
Oops! Sorry ’bout that!!!
Sneezes – no problems my dear friend – sneezes. Just means I have to stay inside today here at the Hotel Thompson. Darn… what an awful thing. I’m off to get back in bed now and watch some more television in my air conditioned room. Such a hard life for a piggy roughing it. Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon
We have plenty of them.
‘They are more beautiful if they are few.’ When they’ve taken over my entire lawn? they’re a weed!
Everything in moderation, right? 🙂
Years ago, we lived in a subdivision and I would dig up every dandelion that had the nerve to appear on our lawn. Then we moved to ten acres and I adopted the philosophy that God and Mother Nature were sending me bouquets of yellow flowers and I should enjoy the color. We don’t live on that many acres right now, but I have quite a delivery of beautiful yellow blooms every year. 🙂
And the bees love them, too! Thanks for helping out our pollinators!!! 🙂
