Long vilified by even the palest of green thumbs, the Dandelion (Taraxacum) bears proud its bright yellow head on many a lawn at this time of year. In spite of the fact that it is often the object of nasty name-calling (‘weed’) and is attacked with any manner of toxins in efforts for man to erase its presence from the planet, the ‘D’ continues to thrive. I think that the Dandelion is pretty. I always have. I recall, as a child, bringing numerous bouquets of them to my grandma.But I am a hypocrite. I just doused my own lawn with weed and feed this past week to rid myself of the pesky things. These photos are of the Dandelions in our pasture. As I said before, they are pretty.
