I thought this cheeky dandelion poking his head up through the bronze fennel foliage was funny. Maybe funny just to gardeners. Maybe funny just to me. We seem to have a lot of dandelions in the garden at the moment, they appear out of nowhere overnight. Don’t get me wrong I love the flowers but they are such a nightmare to get rid of. What is more I don’t think anyone is believing me when I tell them that we have the national collection of Taraxacum officinale. It just takes one clock to blow around the garden and there are a thousand more to taunt me. Usually I pull their heads off (cruel I know) but you will but pleased, I’m sure, to know that this one has been left to shine another day.
