Dandelion Season

Hasn't it been a fabulous dandelion season this year? They have been in bloom everywhere and our rabbit OJ has been in 7th heaven whenever handfuls of the tasty morsels are brought his way.

I know they're weeds and pop up wherever you don't want them, but since having the rabbit (just over a year now) I kind of see them as a renewable crop, and the seed heads are truly beautiful.

So go on, treat yourself to a dandelion head: not to eat but to blow and count the hours like you did when you were a kid (or last week if you're like me) or at least give a seed head a well aimed kick, hear the pop of the stalk breaking and watch the seeds scatter in the air.

The picture is one the special crop from our garden!
