Summertime! This year it is here early. Hopefully the glorious weather can continue. The above photo was taken in Bowring Park in St. John’s in May of 2010, a few days before we left the city and returned home to the west coast of the island, with Boots, my Terrier-Sheltie mix, smiling for the camera
I mowed the lawn last evening, the second time in two weeks. The grass was looking great, I was just bragging that there were practically no weeds to be seen. Waking up this morning, I was greeted by a million dandelion flowers. In a wild fury, those cute yellow devils took over my lovely lawn. Despite their beauty, they are weeds, and too many dandelions can destroy a beautiful lawn in no time at all. Still, there is nothing like running barefoot through a sea of dandelion flowers…in somebody else’s yard.
Today I armed myself with a weed puller and a bottle of environmentally friendly weed killer. I donned my garden clothing (rubber boots and an old ball hat) and I set out to battle the dandelion invasion. I now have 120 holes in my yard where the flowers once grew. Next step, fill the holes and re-seed. Ah Summer!
Now if I can only get my neighbors to do the same!
This is my entry into this week’s trifecta challenge. The word this week is Wild (Adjective)
