Dandelion love!

Growing up in India, I’d never actually seen a dandelion. Only read about it in books written by Western authors. Yeah, maybe there are dandelions growing in India too, in the mountains perhaps, but being a city girl, I’d never actually come across one.

A dandelion was one of those things, such as scones, or say, a jackdaw, which at 26, I still haven’t seen one. But I remember well, that the Famous Five used to relish piping hot scones for breakfast and there was always an annoying jackdaw in their barn. But I was an Indian kid without Internet. In fact, despite all the international travelling that I do now, I still haven’t tried scones. (Must put that on my bucket list.) Nor seen a jackdaw. 

So yeah, I was glad to come across this ethereal dandelion, after seeing numerous pictures of it on Pinterest. This was at Grousse Mountain in British Columbia, Canada. The flower was exactly as I had imagined it to be – light and magical. 

Anyone here know if I can, and how to plant dandelion at home?

  1. Bear in mind that what you saw is one stage of a dandelion! You’ve probably already seen the pictures, but most of the time they have yellow pettles. What you see there are the seeds ready to fly away. Here in the UK, dandelions are considered to be weeds!

    By the way, the best way to eat scones is in a cream tea. Again, you may know this, but that is where the scone is cut in half and spread with clotted cream and jam. Delicious!

So, what do you think about it?
