Leave The Weeds Alone!

Just like the dandelions return each year around this time, so this post has returned.  I know some of you are new to this blog since this was first posted and it is one of my more popular posts so I hope you don't mind me using it again.  So far we only have a couple dandelions in our front yard because Gerard put on the Scott's Turf Builder in time this year.  Many other yards on our street are covered with them!  Good job, Gerard!

Today Gerard and I went to the park and stopped at this bench to read for a little bit. I looked around and saw all these dandelions! I remembered how dad always had a yard full of them and whenever we would mention it, dad would say, "I like them, they're so pretty! Just because someone calls it a weed doesn't mean they're not pretty." I think he had a point there. What do you think? Gerard says they still look like weeds to him.
