crowded bulbs

I enjoy dandelions, violets and clover in my lawn - it's so much prettier
than a plain green lawn.  I even planted some gill-over-the-ground (Glechoma
hederacea) in the lawn so I can smell the refreshing scent while mowing.
I think people hate dandelions especially because they can mow the lawn to
manicured perfection and then a few hours later dandelion seed-heads will
stick up proudly several inches above their perfect green carpet.  An
obsessive-compulsive's bane but a truly beautiful plant.  In our neck of
the woods, they eat them with hot bacon dressing and most people actually
pre-cook them first to reign-in their bitterness.
