233/365 Lion's Tooth

Dent-de-lion interesting facts:
  • Every part of the dandelion is useful: root, leaves, flower. It can be used for food, medicine and dye for colouring.
  • Up until the 1800s people would pull grass out of their lawns to make room for dandelions and other useful “weeds” like chickweed, malva, and chamomile.
  • Dandelions have one of the longest flowering seasons of any plant.
  • Seeds are often carried as many as 5 miles from their origin!

  • A dandelion bouquet is probably the first bouquet you ever gave someone. :)
