These are all really great sites! I was actually looking for the dandelion

wine recipe to share and came across this other stuff instead......

No, this is not my yard!!!! It has very few beautiful dandelions.......

I don't have the time to make dandelion wine or any other kind!

I am a full time realtor and I do have time for you.......

I've heard of dandelion wine but never tried it.......have you?  I think I'll just settle for Chardonnay.

Marilyn, Dandelions are one of nature's masterpieces, aren't they?  So simple, yet beautiful..and with so many uses too.

Hi Sandy, For sure, as a small child it's the one flower you can pick as many as you want!!!! Although I knew they were edible and could be made into wine, I had no idea of the medicinal uses !!! Definately my style -  Simple and beautiful!
