Don't be jealous of my horticultural skills.

People can say what they want about dandelions-but I love them! They're good for you and they always look happy :-) Bravo! on your horticultural skills!

Kate said...

Very impressive! I rather like dandelions, but no one else in the neighborhood does.

Cheyenne said...

Oh my, they are absolutely beautiful.

Nancy said...

Hmmm, we seem to share the same skills. . .

Don't mean to sound negative, but nothing kills dandelions!! The only thing we have blooming is the equally pervasive and hard to kill oxalysis (spelling on this??). I used to love them as a kid, but now not so much!

Marti said...

Thanks, but I was really just making a joke of it. lol

Marti said...

I don't like them either, but I can't seem to be rid of them. I know they have many uses, but I'd just as soon they grow somewhere else.

Marti said...

Or lack of? lol

Marti said...

At least oxalis is considered a real flower. I also have henbit flowering now, but it is not only annoyingly pervasive, but its flowers aren't photogenic.

Strangely enough they seem to multiply.....UNLESS, you specifically want them to grow so you can pull them up for the chooks!! They are great for chooks & the hens just live them........and then you find yourself wishing they would grow.............typical!!!

Marti said...

I'll try to remember that if we can have chickens at our next house. The only beneficial thing I've noticed about dandelions is that aphids prefer them over other plants. If they weren't so prickly, I'd grow them in the garden next to my okra.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
