    I've been admiring all the pics of everyone's flowers so thought I would share mine as well. Of course, the only thing I can say about mine is that they require little or no care at all and are a perennial. Enjoy

    Love your Spring flowers. I'm looking forward to seeing some of your flowers in my yard. DD's still bring me a ball jar full of them even though they are now 19 and 20 years old.

    Think of them as being the ingredients for a salad and wine!!

    Dandelion wine and the young leaves used as salad.

    Beautiful. A weed is only a flower growing the wrong place. Yours are obviously the right place, so enjoy your beautiful flowers......

    Did you know dandelions (at least the ones we know as weeds) are not native to the US? They were brought over from Europe in the mid 1600's for the settlers to plant in their gardens to use as food and in medicines. Since then, of course, they've taken over the entire country as the lovely weed they are!!!

    I have them things too. Have you found a good use for them? I just raked a pile out of one of my flower beds... (still not done have another flower bed to go) :o( I call them pokey balls and while I was raking was wondering why oh why anyone would plant 4-5 of those trees in one yard? They don't even burn well!!!

    Thanks for sharing your flowers!

    Flower bed I just cleaned out.

    I have a lovely yard of those that will be opening up soon...I actually like the violets even when they do there best to take over...the yellow ones clash with my color palatte.

    I have some of them too, but I'm willing to share if anyone wants to come and dig up all they want.

    I have the same flowers - I think they are pretty - but my hubby really does not like the yellow ones in his lawn. I like the spring colors.

    Now, it's only a weed if it's growing someplace where you don't want it. I've have some of the most beautiful gardens, and I didn't even have to plant them!
