Don't Blow Dandelions

As a woman who has spent the past week on her hands n' knees hoicking out dandelions & other weeds, I beg you...DON'T blow dandelion seed heads.
Yes! I know the image above conjures up a sweet childhood fantasy of lazy, happy days, frolicking gaily in meadows of sweet buttercups & poppys, laughing & giggling with Gary Barlow singing 'Here Comes the Sun' at the campfire.
Hold on while I scratch the needle across the record and put an end to your daydreaming!!
Dandelions have roots to Australia (unless of course you're in Australia, then that have roots down to the UK!) You'll also wet the bed if you pick one (so I was told as a child).
Kids...DON'T blow the seed heads...get a BLOW TORCH and burn the B*****S!
I thank you!

I was always told the came from the UK. I wonder how they ever got here. They are a frustrating weed but my kids spent so many times picking those little weeds. Makes me smile thinking about it. This is great.
