Life in Fort Collins, Colorado, USA, North America, Planet Earth
Someone once told me they are flowers in England. Could be one of those urban legends, but I always thought it was a wonderful solution.
I read that dandelions were brought over as seeds by immigrants in the 1800s, from northern Europe. The flower-now-cursed was a great nutritional source in early spring.
I hadn't thought of dandelions as an important source of nutrition. Though I do like dandelion tea, I've yet to chow down on the rest.
I have a weakness for dandelions too. If only weeds could look pretty without trying to take over the yard.
I have heard they are quite tasty, but I haven't ever harvested them. I love the clocks and flowers, but Ornery is not so fond. tm
