3 hundred years ago there were no dandelions here!, the dutch brought them over as a nice flower but in our climate they spread to the point of a weed !, i think of them as a beautiful flower and always will!, a lovely yellow flower then a lovely white ball of umbrellas!, why do we kill this flower?who decides its a weed? the way we have grass is unnatural a weed !? its wildflower gardens for me!. michael jameson oldantiqueguy@hotmail.com
