friend or foe

dandelions are known for their health benefits. some herbalists regard them as a wonder plant. gardening and landscaping companies think otherwise. occasionally, we get a few in our front lawn and we try to get rid of them right away. the flowers are lovely though, aren’t they?

    You can fry them into fritters! 😊 I like them but not enough to let them rule the garden.
