Dandelion. Some people may call them weeds but I consider them to be among some of the most beautiful flowers of all... :)

Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) Volumes could be written on the many uses of dandelion - indeed they have been! This common weed is often hated and poisoned by those preferring a “weed free” lawn, while those of us in love with dandelion and its many uses happily support it taking over our lawns.  Every part of the dandelion can be used as food or medicine, making back door herbalism simple and easy, as it should be.
