Dandelion - weed or not?

Is Dandelion a weed or a beneficial plant

 

To be honest, we humans think that lawns are beautiful and dandelions are ugly. But to every other creature on the planet, Dandelions are beautiful and lawns are ugly!

The pollinators like bees are dying because of the chemicals in our lawns.

The Dandelion gives the queen bees their first snack during spring!

Here is a cool song I wrote to talk about the beautiful flower, Dandelion! Please spread the word that we need to support this plant for our pollinators!

Dandelion - Rap by Buzz Buddy

Dandelion, they’re beneficial plants for pollinators who are dying.
It ain’t a weed, its nectar is the first thing the bees will feed in the spring.
I’m pleading with you, next time you a dandelion don’t just stomp on it with your shoe.
It breaks my heart to see people go boooo,
at the dandelion!

You see there are two types of weeds.
Pernicious Weeds, who are crazy in how much they breed.
They are basically invasive, and they’re empire can get really massive!
Remove then as soon as you can, such the creeping thistle.
It will take away nutrients from your plants like a missile.

But there are also common weeds.
Sure, it could feed on other plants nutrients.
But they are not as destructive, but I mean they are not as obstructive to the ecosystem!
They are just weeds we would rather not have, so don’t give so called ‘weed’ a heart attack.
It is beneficial for the pollinators.
It makes great medicinal dandelion tea, but don’t spray a bunch of roundup on these.
Cause unless you like chemicals in your tea, you shouldn’t be filled with glee

This plant comes from the Asteraceae family, just like the sunflower, so why treat it like an anomaly.
Just let this plant do its stuff!

Dandelion tells us, 'You are Worthy'

There are times we will feel unworthy of who we are.

When those times come the best way to find true happiness is by helping others like the Dandelion.

Don't let the world tell you how worthy you are, at the end it's not about you being accepted or being cool, it's about following your heart and being who you want to be.

Even though we don't want the Dandelion and we always try to get rid of it, it still shows up because it believes it's worthy of helping the pollinators and humans!

I mean what herb lover doesn't like Dandelion Tea?

It's so yummy and healthy. Ever heard of Dandelion fritters? Me neither, but I did find a nice recipe- Click here => RECIPE

Are you one of them?

We need every small deed to make our planet a safe for all the creatures.

Talk soon! Buzz Buddy :)
