Are Dandelions Flowers or Weeds?

Dandelions

When my daughter was little she loved picking dandelions freckled throughout our yard. She eventually turned them into a sidewalk sales pitch to passers by, and tried to sell what she considered flowers.

As kids, my brother and I would take every opportunity to use the dandelions as natures highlighter and leave a yellow smear across each others face.

Imagine a world where we all saw natures natural yellow lawn ornaments as weeds. If we sprayed them all the dandelion games wouldn’t exist like this popular playground chant: “momma had a baby and it’s head popped.”

Who hasn’t heard of that popular kids chant “momma had a baby and it’s head popped” followed by popping the dandelion top off it’s stem. The anthem may be slightly morbid, but I can’t imagine a childhood without out them. Spray away if you feel they look like weeds, but for me personally I’m going to let em grow.
