Make dandelion crowns

How I love spring, and yes, dandelions as well. For me they are a symbol of kids and childhood. Dandelions could be the last flower available in nature, saving kids play in a world where “don’t touch nature”  culture has been taken away from children’s real experiences with nature. A real connection with nature happens from touching, feeling and getting dirty in nature.

Here is a pizza recipe from my friends over at Norcliff Farms Inc. If you don't have any fiddleheads you can replace it with asparagus. Add a comment

Dandelion secrets


By Kari Svenneby

What more can symbolize a childhood and spring than kids picking and playing with dandelions. Even though we adults look at dandelions and think “WEED”, children love them. God bless them!
The uncountable bouquets proudly collected and delivered to mums and grandmothers alone should give the lovely dandelion a little status.
