Dandelions in the moss

Dandelions persist where I don’t want them sending their taproots through my bed of moss to survive animosity. It’s not live and let live when their leaves spread out over this bed of moss that I’ve been grooming for a fairy garden. There wouldn’t be enough to make dandelion wine, and nature doesn’t ask whether a plant has any redeeming value.

Dandelion wine

Wine from a tisane of petals tastes like a sweet brandy, and is good for whatever ails you, evoking memories of summer.
