Dandelions welcome in our frugal yard.....


Some people spend money for pesticides to rid their yard of dandelions.  Others devote hours to digging the pesky little weeds from their lawn.  Both frugal with our time and money, we allow the dandelion to live out is life in our yard unbothered.  We save money.  We save time.  We prevent chemicals from harming the environment.  And I've read, but cannot confirm, that these Spring "flowers" provide food for bees.  Anyone know if that is true?  The dandelion -- consider keeping it, and you just may find beauty and joy in this simple plant.  Above is one of my favorite images of our son, then age 3, snapped in our backyard.  The upside of a frugal life!
