In a good company

I spent last weekend with friends. Not sure whether I was feeling too active or others were tired and without any energy, but at the end of the weekend I had a feeling that both picnics that I was present at were rather dull and boring. Although I enjoyed myself; I didn't have to cook or wash the dishes or tidy up the house or ... I was just walking around and counted the birds and chatted with friends. Nice. I hope there will be more days like these in the next few months. Edible:New hair fashion; a bit smelly but healthy (edible, too) and nice:I love this time of a year! Although it is raining almost every day...Karma for today: Face a limitation and give your very best.

Do you eat dandelions, Pina? And if so, how?

Feronia, on a photo is a Meadow Salsify (Tragopogon pratensis) and not dandelion. I haven't eaten it yet, but if I am not mistaken, closed blossoms are cooked or eaten raw. I should look up in a book, I have it at home.

Usually young leaves of dandelions are eaten in a salad (with cooked and sliced potato; I add only raisins and lots of pumpkin oil, without vinegar), and dried blossoms are used for tea. I don't like it, because I don't like bitter foods.
