Dandelions



Dandelions are only weeds if you think so. They are also a vegetable that can be eaten raw or fried. The flower makes a beautiful bouquet, especially for a youngster bringing the flowers to his favorite mom. The fluffy seed head is wonderful for making a wish, blowing it into the wind, then waiting to see if it comes true. Have you ever had old fashioned dandelion wine? This is a pretty little, pesky wildflower that is one of the last to give up in the fall and one of the first you see in the spring. Just have a minute to check out the dandelion, before Snickers needs to try to catch that tail!

Hey Boo, I found this website that you may be interested in. So far Snickers hasn't eaten grass, that I've seen. But she does look for bunny droppings and worms.
