Dandelions are flowers, and they are what most people consider to be weeds. There is nothing better than walking through the woods, looking not only at the animals and insects, but the so-called weeds as well. When most people get dandelions in their yard, they use herbicide to get rid of them. Why? They certainly look better than the grass itself does. That brings me to a pet peve of mine. Why do many people mow their grass, and then put fertizer on it? And bag up the dead grass? Leave the God-damned dead grass on the lawn and they won't have to fertilize it artificially. The same goes for dead leaves. Leaves and grass and plants are all Nature's natural fertilizers. And life goes on.
