get used to nature's look and help save the bees. I think we are past white sugar, white flour, and perfect lawns. Ughh. If you must have a small front lawn that is hand weed-able and leave the rest to support nature's creatures. Dandelions are also a great food source!

Keep the dandelions, keep the bees. They are diminishing too rapidly as it is and without them we won't eat either.

Right!! Dandelions are one of the first flowers native bees look for as they break hibernation. Plus they make me smile!! Put a few leaves in your Spring salad ( if they are organic) . So many uses. Who didn't blow on the seed heads when they were young. Such fun. Dandelions should be celebrated.
