Dandelion Flower - Sign of Spring


It's springtime - Yeah!


The Medicinal use of the Dandelions

flowers, roots and leaves, have been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine & medicinal teas, most notably for liver detoxification, as a natural diuretic and for inflammation reduction. Unlike other diuretics, dandelion leaves contain good amounts of potassium, a mineral that is often lost during increased urination. There is also evidence that this property of dandelion leaves may normalize blood sugar.  


Hi my friends,

Now it's official, it's springtime. I hope it's arrived everywhere you are living, so you can enjoy also the coming warmer days  :)

Thank you for all the wonderful comments to my posts recently. Looking forward to all the new ones coming up....LOL...

I wish you a great day and see you tomorrow, right? :)
Susanne

We used to have Italians who grew large dandelions and ate them in salads every day. I would collect the leaves for my rabbits and they would sit and munch away. I would love the fairies that would blow in the wind from them and would sigh when upon catching one that I could never catch it without disturbing some of the fluff at the end of the seed pod.
Happy Spring you you as well :)

Yes I know... Italians like those young leaves in the salad - me too :)

Thanks for your kind comment, Lady!

Ich habe gedacht, bei euch sei schon lange Frühling! Ja, und in der Schweiz wird es morgen sogar fast 20°C. Es ist sooooo angenehm nach dieser langen Kälte.
Also, schöne Frühlingsgrüsse an Dich und David!
Gruss, Peter
