A Gardner’s Challenge


A summer Poem

Children blow on my puff ball crown

and watch my feathery seed

float gently to the ground.

Proudly I wear my yellow hat

for all to see

as I mingle amongst a field of green.

Gardeners flame

and curse my domain

as I sit amidst a lawn so trained.

I am an herb, a plant , a weed,

I am the trinity

that will flourish for infinity.

    I have looked closely at a dandelion and it is a beautiful flower. What a beautiful tribute!

    The dandelion is an amazing medicinal plant as well a plant that is eaten as a garnish on salads and food. I know no other plant that a human can eat from the root all the way to its blossom, leaves included.
