Have you ever been given a Dandelion/Creeping Charlie/ Violet bouquet? Did you ever pick dandelions and give them to your Mom? I've given and received many - and honestly love their charm. You may not believe me but I actually like dandelions (except when all of them are in that fluffy stage and look really scraggly).
My Mom once told me a story that shows it's all just a matter of conditioning. She was in a garden center in Texas and saw what appeared to be Crepping Charlie in a pot, *gasp* - for sale! She double-checked with the clerk and yep - it was Creeping Charlie! The clerk said something to the effect of "yeah, they were so pretty, it was a shame that they could be difficult to grow" I guess by now you've figured out that in Canada they're considered a lawn nuisance and don't get ANY love! They infiltrate lawns and people just hate this "weed"! At our house there is a fair bit of it mixed in with our grass and I've just decided to think of them as bonus purple flowers. And hey - together with our dandelions they kind of go with my blue/yellow theme :)
