Don't pull those weeds!

Dandelions are another.   Its name comes from the French “dents de lion” meaning “teeth of lion.” You may also know it by puffball as it turns into a white puffball when it goes to seed. While many people think of them as annoying weeds, dandelions are actually a rich source of vitamins A, B complex, C, and D, as well as minerals such as iron, potassium, and zinc. The edible herb has been used to help stimulate digestion, cure warts, and relieve symptoms associated with the common cold and PMS.

Thought this would be interesting to know about Dandelions.  Here's the site to check out more info on weeds.  A Weed Is A Weed Right?
