Dandelions are either pretty yellow flowers, or vile weeds; it depends
on your point of view.
Some people like Dandelions because deer eat them. I also know some
people who eat dandelion salad made from the leaves before the flowers
bloom, but I haven't personally tried it and I don't suggest that you
eat it without verifying that it's safe. Anything that grows by a
road-side has been exposed to exhaust fumes, and any plant this hated by
so many is likely to have been sprayed with something to kill it. Think
before you pick!
I've always thought that Dandelions look like sunshine on a stem, and
I've always enjoyed blowing the seed puffballs. Obviously I'm not a
Dandelion hater, but then I do like most of my
for various reasons.
Dandelion leaves are long and narrow with jagged edges.
