Yes, I suppose they are weeds, but how can you help but to like them? I actually enjoy them and never try to kill them out of my yard. To me Dandelions are like little puffs of sunshine, they make me smile. The violets are just an added bonus, together they make a beautiful bouquet. I always love it when the kids bring me a big 'ol handful of Dandelions and tell me they picked me flowers.
