    Your picture is so bright and colorful, reminds me of a bunch of sunflowers on a smaller scale. But speaking of weeds, I love Queen Anne’s lace and daisies.

    1. My mother used to make dandelion wine, which I think always turned to vinegar… I drank half a bottle once when I was about 14, trying to get drunk (for the 1st time). Did not know what wine was supposed to taste like – got sick to my stomach and threw up… did not get even slightly drunk.
