"Dandelions are thought to have evolved about thirty million years ago in Eurasia; they have been used by humans for food and as a herb for much of recorded history"
LOL well let's face it they are usually the first flower you see because there are so many and they grow everywhere! I had planned for today to be something else but I'm stuck inside and dandelions are so bright and cheerful that I decided to see if I could find a picture to share. I hope it cheered you up as much as it did me.
One of the places I looked says that we should rethink our habit of removing them because they have become an important source of food for bees and butterflies as well as having many culinary uses for humans.
