Day 222 – Dandelions do

macro shot of dandelions bloom

Roses are red,
Violets are blue;
But they don’t get around
Like the dandelions do.
~ Slim Acres

This quote made me chuckle. I have to admit that as a general rule I leave the dandelions be. In fact I am not a big weeder so unless something is totally out of hand I let it alone. I think dandelions are rather beautiful, they have lovely sunny yellow blooms that are then replaced with something so delicate and perfect that only nature really knows how to create.

    Love the rhyme and fantastic photo Molly. I often wonder who’s to say what is a weed and what’s not? Especially when I’m trying to hold them back from invading my borders!
    Enjoy your week and thanks for making me smile 😀

      Yes indeed, sometimes it is good to just give them a name and accept them as part of the life of your garden
