Plus, dandelions and other weeds are beautiful, food for birds like finches and people, and incredible medicine. They are good for body, mind, and spirit, and don't let billions of dollars in advertising convince you otherwise.
Let's follow Ontaio, Canada's lead and BAN the use of weed killers on dandelions! (In 2009 they banned the cosmetic use of commercial weed killers on yards, parks, and playgrounds.)
Love the dandelions. They are an amazing source of beauty, nourishment, and medicine.
East and West, Dandelion is Best
Love and Dandelion Wishes,
