The seeds are already spreading here - I was at a local Nature Reserve on Saturday and the air was thick with dandelion seeds.

We call the seed heads 'Dandelion Clocks' as you are supposed to be able to tell the time of day by how many puffs of your breath it takes until the seeds have all gone!

I don't mind them either even though they are weeds i just leave them grow and mow them as we cut the lawn, i've drank the juice by mistake once my grandmother had saved it i guess from the leaves i can't tell you how bitter it was and nasty but i heard athletes drink it since it rehydrate them better than any sports drink.

Dandelion leaves are very good in a salad.  A few years ago I had promised a mixed salad to my family for lunch, but forgot to buy lettuce - so I went into the garden and picked a few dandelion leaves and threw them in. My family enjoyed the salad, only commenting that the 'lettuce' had an unusual taste!

My wife and I garden all the time and since mothers day is right around the corner I just bought her a bunch of tools and equipment that she'll love
