To be honest, I've been getting really annoyed with dandelions this year.
It's the season when I see too many of the pesky puffs all over our yard, including the massive one next to our front door, so large and lush as to be practically ornamental. Earlier, I used to think, 'One man's weed is another's wildflower' and was highly inclined to let it go through its full life cycle without disturbance.
But with the inordinate sneezing that I've been suffering from over the last couple of weeks, triggered in part by the pollen, the iron has entered my soul. I am planning a rampage with the Weedhound, inveterate puller-upper of Canada thistles, dandelions, creeping charlie, cinquefoil and the like.
Since I plan to be the Destroyer of Dandelions, I thought it appropriate to go for a new look on the blog as well, replacing my earlier dandelion puff theme with a more neutral and hopefully, easier on the eyes, color and themes.
Please feel free to comment on the new appearance!
