The Robson Valley is certainly “Dandelion Country”. Dandelions always get a bad rap, mostly from lawn fanatics who hate to see their monocultured lawns disturbed with a bit of variation. I admit it is frustrating to see all those lanky flowers and fluff balls sticking up in a lawn that was just mowed 3 days ago, but dandelions do help the bees and grazing animals because they are rich in nutrients.
As someone who really enjoys color, I love to see the yellow of the Dandelion flowers added to the blues and greens of the landscape.
