Dandelions, August 3rd 2020
Nothing makes you happier than dandelions 🦊
🌹And for once it might be grand…🌹
🌹 to have someone, understand🌹
🌹I want so much more 🌹
🌹than they’ve got planned ….🌹
Hello August! The months are just ticking by one by one 👀 I went with a dandelion/wish theme for this month’s layout (Pinterest was really helpful as usual). For this one I tried to keep it simple stylistically & color wise. When I’m writing in it I’ll be using a light green pen to add a pop of color 💚 I’m mainly happy that my habit tracker turned out well once again 🤗 Well, happy last full month of summer 🐰✨🌬
My children love to pick flowers; as a result, I have a near constant bouquet of dandelions on my table.
Make a wish…..
Not today, you two.
It’s that time of wide-spread food insecurity again, and if I see any of you reblogging that bloody post telling people that dandelions are a good thing to eat I’ll fucking block you.
Having been poor enough to try to
live off the land: they’re fucking diuretics and they take a lot of time
and effort to make edible.They aren’t a practical or helpful thing to
You’ll be telling people they’re bourgeoisie for dissing the weed, but to suggest this you have to be both arrogant and comfortably well off to a) think this is ‘helpful’ (and not deeply patronising) and b) completely disconnected from what poverty is actually like.
And yes, I have unfollowed over this issue before.
I was poor for a very long time. It’s a big part of why I’m ill. I have a good job now, but I haven’t forgotten what it was like. I could live off £10 a week for food when I was healthy, but it took energy and was hard work. Preparing dandelions is a PAIN. Eating them is NOT PARTICULARLY NUTRITIOUS and WILL MAKE YOU WANT TO PEE TOO MUCH and probably dehydrate you.
This is NOT a solution for poor people, it’s a way for you to feel smug whilst actually being dangerously wrong.
