Is it because they grow over night? They grow in the middle of your lawn? You invite one and the whole extended family moves in?
With all the rain we’ve had our lawn had turned into a serious green shag. My hubby fired up the mower and began the familiar back and forth pattern. Despite the many potholes and severe slant to our backyard the lawn looked beautiful. It beckoned us to come turn cartwheels, walk barefoot and bask in the sunshine.
Today the yard is speckled with yellow and white dandelions. I knew they would come back as we haven’t done the weed’n’feed yet but I didn’t expect them back so soon. I really don’t mind the bright yellow flowers. They bring back memories of childhood. Do you remember rubbing them on your chin to see if you liked butter? As a child I even loved the white seeded heads that you could make a wish and blow – scattering seeds to the neighbor’s yards as they cursed you.
By the way, I don’t advise attempting to blow on one while facing into the wind.
