    Your photography is stunning.

    Guinea pigs can help with the dandelions – when we had them our neighbours would drop whole plants off at the back gate almost every day from March -November.

    Can’t help being impressed by such a brilliantly adapted plant, and it is beautiful too. Lovely photographs.

    Greg – you’re so right, yet I still couldn’t resist giving it a blow! I hope the hard baked ground was impenetrable to the little blighters.

    Fiona – don’t see many guinea pigs passing my plot {wink}. I thought about making dandelion tea ones then realised it wasn’t worth as it tastes more like coffee (or perhaps mud!).

    Janet – and catapaulted back to memories of childhood at the mere sight of them

    Trevor – it would be my own fault if they did. Time will tell!

    VERY young dandelion leaves are OK in salads, but they quickly become too bitter, unless you are a rodent!

    I have never been a fan of dandelion tea. The flowers do make nice cordials and wine though. Foarger’s brewing is my Big Thing for this year.
