There is nothing dandy about a dandilion

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.

A New Day

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.
