I've always thought that dandelions were mistreated. For some reason they acquired the label weed and now everyone wants to get rid of them. People do not want them growing on their lawn ruining the pristine greeness of suburbia. If you are between the ages of 2-5 though. they are precious flowers that make the grass look so much prettier, and who can resist blowing the white puffs and making a wish. Really we should be killing the grass and letting the pretty yellow flowers make our lawns sunnier and brighter. Not to mention how much more useful a dandelion is than lawn grass. Who makes lawn tea? You don't eat grass, unless you are my dog, but you can use dandelions leaves in salads and smoothies. Instead of killing these beautiful flowers that grow without any tending, we should all be encouraging them to take over our lawns. We can then harvest them and sustain ourselves. Plus we get the chance to make lots and lots of wishes. Oh, and you don't have to mow dandelions.
