No one like dandelions … but the bees love them and they make a delicious wine. Violets are considered weeds too, but I love them and they have a wonderful smell. The little purple pansy like flowers grow everywhere and I have yet to figure out exactly what they are or where they come from. Anyone out there recognize them?
We don’t cut the back lawn until the violets and dandelions are gone for the year.
