Dandelion Stamens

Dandelions have got to be the most hated and the most loved of plants.  We revile them on our lawns, but when we see a field of these yellow blossoms stretching like a carpet of polka dots into the distance, we remark that it looks beautiful.  When we were kids, we told time by blowing away the delicate seed parachutes of a dandelion clock. Some of us enjoy eating tender young dandelion greens cooked, or in a salad, and some of us make dandelion wine.  On the other hand, some of us go to the garden supply store and buy weedkiller.   I guess it’s all in how you look at dandelions!
