The much maligned dandelion is truly a Beautiful Weed.
Rather than just cursing those infernal pests that pepper lawns,
have you ever really examined one up close?
Look at the incredible delicacy of the dandelion:
the perfectly scalloped tips of each petal,
the curlicues pointing toward the
gorgeous chrysanthemum-like curving petals at the center,
and its glorious and happy color!
This beauty was one of a few stars on our front lawn, much to my husband's chagrin.
They don't last long, and I think they add a lovely sunny look to an otherwise boring lawn.
