that soggy Dandelions could looks so pretty?
Did you know that Dandelion comes from the French language dent-de-lion, meaning, lion tooth? Named thus because the raggy leaves look like teeth. I didn't.
Do you remember being told not to pick them when you were a child because if you picked a dandelion you'd wet the bed that night? At least that old wives tale had a grain of truth. The roots of the dandelion have a strong diuretic effect but you have to eat them not just pick the flowers.
It would appear on doing some research that we should actually encourage a few dandelions in our gardens and not be intent on killing them all (take note my next door neighbours!) Dandelions are actually good for your lawn, bees love them and so do butterflies.
See I knew there was a reason why I keep a natural garden. :)
