sea of yellow – beautiful
yet unwanted buds
Who decided that
dandelions are nothing
more than evil weeds?
If it wasn’t for the fact that my entire neighborhood believes that dandelions should be eradicated from the planet, I’d be able to enjoy the golden blanket across my backyard. Actually, I still think they’re pretty, and while I’ve eradicated them in the front yard, I don’t want to use harsh chemicals in the areas where my kids play.
By the way – thanks for all the garlic suggestions last week! I can’t wait to try out some of your ideas!
Also, I’m walking in the March for Babies here in Columbus this weekend – if you haven’t donated to the March of Dimes yet, please consider helping me reach my goal in the walk! I’m walking not only in honor and memory of those touched by prematurity in my life, but I’m also walking in memory of Maddie. I’ll have purple balloons at the walk, keeping them with me as a reminder and then setting them free at the end.
To play along for Haiku Friday, follow these steps:
1. Write your own haiku on your blog. You can do one or many, all following a theme or just random. What’s a haiku, you ask? Click here.
2. Sign the Mister Linky below with your name and the link to your haiku post (the specific post URL, not your main blog URL). DON’T sign unless you have a haiku this week. If you need help with this, please let me know.
3. Pick up a Haiku Friday button to display on the post or in your sidebar by clicking the button at the top.
REMEMBER: Do not post your link unless you have a haiku this week! I will delete any links without haiku!
