Dandelions are actually a food too :) I've made stir-fry dandelion. They are good and are good FOR you! :)Isnt it amazing how plants too can have a social status? Did we give them the status? If I were a 4 leaf clover, would I regard dandelion as a fellow weed? When I was a kid, before I understood socio-botanical classifications, dandelions were beautiful flowers.
