April 5th National Dandelion Day

April 5th National Dandelion Day

Most of us think of Dandelions as weeds, well they are. However they are flowers, some think they are pretty, others still see them as weeds. Native Americans believed the Dandelion had healing powers. No one is sure if they actually helped anyone but as with many medicines, it’s what’s in your mind that makes you feel better.  That said, people realized that you could eat Dandelions and they have used them ever since. They are colorful, apparently taste, at least, okay and are pretty. Don’t make them just weeds in your world.

How to celebrate – Get to know your weeds. Appreciate Dandelions instead of hating them. Try flavoring your favorite dishes with Dandelions.
