Dandelion Tales

Spring is the time of year for the dandelions to emerge and go through their visible annual life-cycle in our part of the world.  I like dandelions even though they are considered a nuisance and battled in the lawns of our homes.

Dandelions tend to take over other untreated open spaces once they find a foothold.  You can experience the life cycle of the dandelions while walking along the towpath.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Dandelions are supposed to be edible, including the flowers, leaves and roots.
