    Dandelions are one of my favorite flowers.  Once the dandelions bloom, I know that spring has officially arrived.  But they do actually benefit us by more than just their looks.

    Dandelion greens are nutritious and good to eat. 
    You can make dandelion wine from the blossoms
    In herbal medicine dandelions are used to treat a variety of problems, especially those concerning the liver and urinary tracts.  They are often used in spring tonics to help recovery from the dark days of winter.

    Those are a few of the good attributes of Dandelions.

    Roasted dandelion root is a delicious and strong tea that some use as a coffee substitute.  Dandelion tea, by the way, is wonderful for the liver, digestive system and for a general body detoxification after eating less than healthy. 

    Plus, many herbalists recommend dandelion for women's breast health.  So before pulling those weeds. . .
