dandylions

Unlike the bright red blossom in yesterday’s post (“Hard To Ignore,” 07.23.14), the lowly dandelion is easy to ignore…unless it happens to be growing in the middle of your dark green lawn, where its bright yellow blooms are sure to stand out.

Have you waged a war with dandelions? For a small plant that grows only a few inches tall, it can be incredibly tenacious. It has a strong taproot several times longer than the plant is tall, and if you don’t pull up the entire root, the dandelion grows back, again…and again…and again.

So you can hate it, or learn to love it.

I love it…in salads!
