j’aime la dent de lion beaucoup plus que stupide hermes

Some people ask for an Hermes scarf when their chap goes to Paris. Me, I just wanted some good dandelion seed.
The chap did not disappoint!
Et voila!  The shady corner of the garden where pissenlit (translation: ‘wets the bed’—dandelion is a known diuretic so maybe best not to eat bucketsful before lights out) shares space with the domestic variety, as well as horseradish, nettles and returning tufts of raddicho. The naked bits are where seeds have been sown for a fresh Fall crop. (Think salad… with chopped egg, garlic and a warm grainy mustard/bacon vinaigrette.)

Try doing that with a scarf.
