Hello Sunshine.

By Tooma
And now for something completely different - the pre-seed - the preceding stage of the humble, and common, yet very vibrantly beautiful Dandelion flower; a right little ray of sunshine burning the mist away.

Lots of good and beneficial nutrients in Dandelion Tea, and I have read the flower is edible for a colourful addition to summer lock-down salads. I may taste it one of these days, but not from my garden - too many cats, foxes, slugs, and birds dropping their business about the place.

Stay well and make the most of the madness. "We'll sing in the sunshine, we'll laugh every day-ay-ay-ay, we'll sing in the sunshine, then I'll be on my way". I hear you Trini! Smile

Maybe if you boil them first then add them to your tea. Better to just photograph them I think.

When I see how many I have in my lawn, have I been missing a photographic opportunity or even a cup of tea? How about dandelion wine?

Dandelion Wine Recipe (& the Mistake You Don't Want to Make)
https://commonsensehome.com/dandelion-wine-recipe/
Homemade Dandelion Wine Recipe "Dandelion wine, believed to be of Celtic origin, is regarded as one of the fine country wines of Europe.In the late 1800s and early 1900s, it was not proper for ladies to drink alcohol. However, dandelion flower wine was considered so therapeutic to the kidneys and digestive system that it was deemed medicinal even for the ladies.
