    We drove past a field today and it looked beautiful with lots of yellow blobs, they were all dandelions, very pretty.

    Weeds are just unrefined garden plants. The can look just as nice as the cultivated ones, and a lot easier to grow. Cheaper too.

    My mum used to call them Wetthebeds, but I think that's just an old wives tale. You may be interested to know that the name'Dandilon' is a corruption of the french 'dent de lion', 'teetth of lion'. The leaves are said to look like lions teeth.
