I don't always like Dandelions in my gardens, but there are times when I do, like when I see the birds, butterflies and bees use them for food!!

Sharon, thank you, loved it!!

What great pictures, Margaret, and an excellent point.
I mentioned the pollinators that they bring in one of my comment posts, that's so important.
Thanks so much especially for the images, they tell the tale for sure.

Thank you Sharon.

How do you edit the subject line, I was tired last night and I see an extra "for" *Blush* in there and I can't delete it???

I can't edit a comment thread title either, but I don't think it really matters, Margaret.
Actually until you mentioned it here, I didn't even notice.

If it's important to you, I guess Dave can do it, but it's minor, really. Smiling

And I didn't notice it till you mentioned it, either. I make a lousy proof-reader! Hilarious!
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.
