Dandelions in Ireland
Saturday, 02 May 09 17°C / 63°F
When I was in Ireland, I noticed that people allowed dandelions, clover and other weeds in their lawns. Even in the upscale suburb where I was staying (a resort area — all the houses had fancy cars out front), the lawns had dandelions in them.
Dandelions are the happy faces of spring. I love them, and I don’t see why they have to be viewed as a blight. What could be more pleasing than the contrast of bright yellow and spring green after a long winter?
These pictures are from the Saggart Parish cemetery, in county Saggart on the west side of Dublin. They’re for all the dandelion-haters out there.
