It's easy to love dandelions now that I don't have a yard to chase them out of. And I just discovered that dandelions are in the same weed flower family as daisies, my all time favorite flowers. Daisies always make me happy because they are hardy and optimistic - they don't seem to care that they have been deemed weeds because they are so busy being perky, cute, and just ... really happy. A daisy is one of nature's ways of smiling. And dandelions are smilers too.
