Default Dandelions

When I was a little boy growing up on Steele Street in East Denver, my dad would work for hours digging Dandelions out of the yard. He used a Dandelion digger. So when I grew up I killed Dandelions with the best of them. But now that I've really grown up I welcome dandelions as they are essentially the first food in the Spring for our pollinators. And this year lo and behold, I have a large group of Honey Bees and Carpenter Bees feeding on my Dandelions! It's good to have them back. I tolerate the Wasps also as they just don't bother me anymore. In order the Honey Bee(European/Western Honey Bee) the Carpenter( watch out for them!) and the Paper Wasp.
