We were very thoughtful children.  We used to bring little bouquets of flowers inside during the summer.  We were fine in spring, with the tulips and such, but in between things like tulips and gladiolas, the pickings were slim.  So we used dandelions instead.  I am sure this was very moving to my mother.  We thought we were being quite nice.

Of course, dandelions really do belong out on the lawn, it turns out.  And to prevent one’s lawn from growing more and more of these lovely flowers, you have to cut them before they get all fluffy, or else the lawn mower seeds them for you.  Some patches of my lawn are too wet too cut, so those dandelions get to be all white and fluffy.  They are actually quite pretty in this state, if you can ignore the fact that each little poof ball creates a larger weed problem than already exists.


About Kathy

I'm a twenty-something who loves animals, farming, photography and cooking/baking. Luckily enough, photography works really well with the other three subjects, so I carry my camera around practically everywhere. Other than that, my life is pretty uneventful.
