The dandelion is a noble flower, mimicking the tooth of a lion. It is not its fault that there are far too many of them, populating my lawn in their multitudes.

A commonality doesn’t have to destroy beauty.

It’s also a shame that on de-weeding chemicals, on the labels, blackberries are considered “weeds.”

    I don’t know how blackberries behave in Minnesota, but up around Seattle they were beyond weeds and well into Day of the Triffids.

    Blackberries become weeds when they take up a 144-square foot section of the yard and the birds have eaten all the berries and all you have left is a bunch of vines with leaves and thorns and you hack away at them and they still come up next year. Not that I have spent the past week putting salve on my arms or anything.
