...sometimes even a single feather is enough to fly. (Robert Maclean)


singing the praises of dandelions

who could call such a beautiful flower a weed?




Dandelions are nothing short of amazing.
Some people hate them, but I know better.
I have fond memories of harvesting dandelion greens with my grandmother
from her yard for dinner, rinsing them in the collander in her old porcelain sink.

There's so much more you can do with dandelion than just eat the greens, though.
You can dig up the root and use it to make a tincture.
You can pop off the blossoms and make dandelion wine.
You can make dandelion vinegar, dandelion oil.

And there's an amazing tasting drink Sasha introduced me to, called Dandy Blend. 

And dandy it definitely is!
The dandiest.
My favorite new after-dinner drink
and sometimes in the morning, too.
Gotta try it with milk. 

You can get it online, or if you're a local, it's in Greenstar near the coffee.
