Garden Challenge: Wildflowers

20160512_084605I stopped to snap a photo of the violas dancing in the grass but I fell in love with the dandelions.

My retired neighbour most certainly hates that I’m leaving dandelions about. He doesn’t see how these few dandelions will help save the bees.

 

“A weed is but an unloved flower.”
Ella Wheeler Wilcox

I really enjoy the vibrant yellow of the dandelions and the soft shape of it when it’s gone to seed.

One of the most important ways you can help is by planting native wild flowers, and encouraging those around you to do the same. … Simply not mowing the grass can provide habitat in the form of clover and dandelions. ~ SaveBees.org

  1. I can’t say I welcome dandelions in my garden (even though they do seem to have taken up residence here) but I’m happy to see them in the hedgerows. Lovely captures and thanks for sharing and linking to the challenge 🙂
