I want to know who designated them a "weed" in the first place? My boys think they're just as beautiful as any other flower, and they regularly grace our table.
I was lovingly brought many a dandelion by my wonderful kiddos! Interestingly, a lot of the perinneals in our gardens are technically "weeds" in that they grow wild in other locations - daisies, cone flower, coreopsis, and more. And I sure think that they are beautiful! Great photos!
