Dandelions for Patti

Dandelions for Patti 

Courtesy of early, spring-like weather, a few small dandelion patches have begun to sprout in areas around the sanctuary. Though most of us prefer to rid these little weeds from our garden, alpha-chimp, Patti begs the differ. These colorful blooms are enough to raise her eyes and keep her busy foraging for hours. Each floret contains an edible quality that’s delicious, delightful and certainly worthwhile of her effort.  Unfortunately, they haven’t sprouted in abundance as of yet but no worries for Miss Patti. Her lust for dandelions is not overlooked by the humans in her world.  All available florets were tracked down, hand-plucked and delivered with a smile. They were a dandy treat for Patti, so much that she signed “More!”  ~Shayla Scott, Snr. Caregiver
