There will be dandelions growing in my front yard this year...
Because I want to protect our local wildlife, the water supply, and my family and our visitors - so I don't use chemicals.
Because my home will be featured on Bridge Communities' Glen Ellyn Garden Walk and I have lots of gardening projects to do this year and had to postpone removing my lawn until fall or even next year.
Because popping out dendelions by hand is great exercise. Ha!
Because I might try cooking with dandelions. Foraging is so in style this year (thanks Hunger Games).
Because my four-year-old thinks the flowers are pretty.
Sorry neighbors. We'll do our best to keep them out, but I'm not promising anything!
