Chic Knits Sock Nation Knittin' Citizen

…the Sock Speaks…
Make Mine Yellow

Ah – to enjoy a flower in the Spring – I walk to the bus stop these days just drinking it in. The green, the petals, the scent – it is all around us – is this not the most glorious time of the year?

The lilacs promise; the dandelions wave.

Dent de lion?

They indeed are everywhere – and one would be hard-pressed to not call them the most prolific Wildflower of the Plains, non?

They control erosion, re-mineralize the soil and offer food to the animal species. Just like any other W.E.E.D.

Sock says they make a rather nice couch as well…

======================

“What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Feral or Floral? the L.A. Times weighs in

BTW: “…If you have been told that even a fragment of a root will regenerate, the good news is: It won’t, says Nesom. “Hit it below the top of the root or the growing point,” he says, “and you’ve got it.””
