Me: Look at these weeds. They have little bulbs on the end.
AP: Oh — those are probably daffodils that didn’t bloom.
Me: Oh no!! I’ve just pulled out about four of them.
Me: Are these weeds? They look like a plant of some sort.
AP: Those are weeds.
Me: Ewwwww. Bugs! Are we supposed to dig up all those dandelions, too?!
I can only imagine what the neighbours think of me as we attempt a spring clean up of our garden. Our neighbours have lovely gardens that are manicured and clean. No wonder they are reluctant to accept Christmas cookies from me.
As a famous comic once said, “I am two with nature.”

At least you have winter, a time you can totally forget about the garden. My weeds grow year round.
Isn’t it a relief to reach Spring though … and gardening and BBQs. Thank goodness!
I would love to come and help you! If you really want to get rid of your dandelions, don’t try to pull or dig them.Instead, get a sharp long (narrow) blade knife and slide it, at a slight angle, cutting through the tap root.Much better than lots of little holes in the lawn.
Hahaha…flash backs to “The Clemtis Story”!
Clematis! Sorry…..chemo fingers! 🙂
