Gleefully golden

Spreading your seeds everywhere

Welcome to the bees


Giant Dandelion 2

These giant dandelions have suddenly sprung up all over the lawn.

Pretty to look at, indeed, and the bees certainly favour them. – see photo below

Giant Dandelion and Bee 3

But in the end, they’re just big weeds, which are successfully overwhelming the struggling grass, soΒ they have to go!

      Absolutely! πŸ™‚
      I like them really – always lovely to have a splash of colour – and as they are so hard to dig up, there are still plenty in the lawn! πŸ˜€

      They are a scourge in our garden but every bit is edible.
      That’s prepper knowledge and a misspent youth learning from a rag tag group of people from yesteryear who taught me all of my bush craft skills.

    Mother Nature likes to play tricks on us by making weeds as pretty as flowers! Isn’t it a shame that a plant that helps to sustain bees has to go because it is such an invasive weed. Sigh…..

      I hadn’t noticed the bee till I was processing my photos for the blog.
      Not to worry though, there are plenty more flowers in my garden to keep the little bee happy! πŸ˜€
      And most of these giants weeds are still there – it’ll take a while to dig them all out!
