There is nothing dandy about a dandilion. It is a nasty little beast that attacks lawns and then gets bigger and goes deeper than any plant should. I have been digging these little monsters for the past week and they keep coming back. Oh, not as big but come back they do nevertheless. The NERVE!!!!!!! Did I invite them? NO! Will I be sorry to see them go? NO! Oh yes, they look so innocent with their cute little yellow flower but they are a menace to my aching knees. A plague upon you you you ...........dandys.

Yesterday was my Dad's birthday. He would have been 97. I use to think that I had few memories of my father but actually I have quite a few. Mostly I think of him in the garden. He enjoyed working out there. I have to admit that it is restful but I don't have the love of it he had. Maybe it is because of the dandilions. That is what is in my garden. The biggest dandilions I have ever seen.
I'd plant other things if I could get all the dandilions out but that seems an endless project. Oh well,I will persevere.

Did you ever get the feeling that things have changed and you didn't even know when they did? I have a feeling that things have changed for me. Today, I feel better. My knees don't but I do.
Maybe it is the sunshine. Boy does that have a lot to do with my feelings. I don't mind the rain but the Northwest has an abundance of it and sometimes it gets tooooooo much. I think that has been my problem.
Whatever, today I feel good. One day at a time.
