AM I A WEED OR A COLORFUL AND BEAUTIFUL PERENNIAL FLOWER
In a way Dandelion is considered a Spring Flower and a good green part of our natural not cared for lawn. It’s green, eatable and is a good grower in about any type of soil. Bit of a pain in the flower beds. I am calling it Taraxacum officinale from now on and that will end all the why questions about dandelion’s growing in our yard.
I started this post as the first blast of Taraxacum officinale was coming into full bloom. The weather has curtailed that and with several days of cloudy rainy weather predicted it may never happen. Besides the fact that if the sun ever comes out again everything will be so tall and need to be mowed before it becomes a jungle I may not get to photograph it in full bloom. So we will have to live with what I have been able to get so far.
Here is a link to wikipedia check out the uses section.
Weather not allowing a good photo shoot of the Taraxacum officinale. That’s it for this post and I am sure tomorrow will bring a change in the weather. Weather channel is showing a little hope for some sun.
