“What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have never been discovered.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
The Dandelion remains a weed and yet are we really oblivious to this plants beauty. It has bright yellow flowers with an abundance of tiny petals that fan out making it look like a golden star growing on the earth and then that flower turns into a seed head that has delighted each and everyone of us as children and a fair few of us as adults. Can you really resist the temptation to blow its seeds and watch them scatter. Maybe the dandelion is a weed but I think it is the most delightful uninvited guest there is.
