Dandelions are out today in all their glory. There is city ban on spraying so I took a small tour of the neighborhood and found obviously more than half are spraying,due to the absence of dandelions on their lawns. I took some pictures of a small local park and the grass is obliterated by the yellow flowers. I dug some from my lawn and made dandelion juice. I find the juice to be invigorating, sort of take up your bed a and walk. I will dig a large amount from the park and make few liters of juice.

I have had dandelion wine made in the Amana Colonies. It was good too!

I'm so glad I found this thread. It brought back memories of a poem my mother wrote many years ago.
" Ode To The Dandelion"
My neighbors lawn is a carpet of green,
mine is much nicer, it has a golden sheen.
You have been tossed in salads and chomped,
as a weed you just get stomped.
You're the bane of every gardeners existence,
me, I love your sunny face and especially your darn persistence.
