I spent 38.4 minutes dallying about the backyard in late afternoon. I cleaned a little. I re-arranged some patio furniture. I dug up grass from the garden boxes where it is not welcomed. I placed landscaping rocks back where they belong and not where the grand-bebes have carried them. I discovered the Asian Lilies greening up with new growth, some self-placed Cosmos sprouting between the pathway rocks and a still-intact though flattened and quite-orange pumpkin hiding under some leaves.
And? I dug up 3 perfectly formed, healthy and delightfully brilliant-yellow dandelions. Because they are not allowed in the neighborhood. But I secretly think they deserve to be.
