  1. I wish I could tell that to my zillions of dandies covering up EVERYTHING…. I loved them until they got to take over my 1150m2 of garden! And you don‘t feel like eating their leaves once you tried for hours to unroot their trunk-like strong holds 😉
    Having said that, I will go back to liking them once I‘m outta here…. promise.
    Also, dandies are not a weed, they are flowers with a different name 🙂

  2. They do look nice. I think they’re underappreciated because they’re so common. I ate one once and it was bitter–there’s probably some trick to cooking them.

  3. Poor Mick had to cancel his upcoming tour for medical reasons. My friend was set to see his first shoe in Miami this April. I did not know he’s 75 years old!!!!! Whaaaa??????

  4. I’ve actually eaten the greens a few times, kind of a springtime tradition, with a hot Penna. Dutch bacon dressing. If you pick them young enough, they’re really not bitter. And I like the flowers.
    I saw that Mick Jagger had heart surgery – – we were discussing, how on earth they’d manage to sedate him!
