We live in a town where “green” isn’t as much about being environmentally friendly, as it is about contests to see who’s lawn looks most like a perfectly manicured golf course.
We don’t play. Pesticides not only aren’t safe for our dogs, but they’d wash into our pond with far reaching consequences for the wildlife who depend on it. So our property has a very, well, um, natural look to it around this time of year.
You have to admit, if you didn’t know what they were, you’d think they were pretty. In another couple of weeks, they’ll all be spent and our lawn will look as green as the next guy’s. In the meantime, we’ll enjoy the sun-kissed look.
When life gives us dandelions, we make dandelion salad.
