the blow thingys

ok, ok, i know they are called dandelions but blow thingys are much more fun to say.  :o)  let me tell you how i got so see something amazing & i had never noticed before...

so this weekend i went to a local pawn shop & got a lawn mower, i will blog about this crazy story later.  i had issues with it so i had to take it back.  they fixed it & i brought it home today.  my work friend jody, so nicely met me there to pick it up for me & dropped it off.  i thought i would just park on the street so he could back up in the driveway.  well this is were i noticed a peculiar looking plant.  it looked almost alien-flower like & then it dawned on me... it's a dandelion... all wet!  had i not parked on the street, i wouldn't have ever noticed it.  it's so pretty but the bad thing is my yard is riddled with these weeds!  i love dandelions, they are so whimsy & cute but in all honesty they are just plain ole' weeds.  :(  so that means i have to spray, i'm hoping to get some yard work done when the grass is green & the sun is shining.  i have some great st. augustine in the front yard so i want to nurture it & make my entire front yard soft enough to go barefoot.  i have to do the back breaking de-thatching first though.  that's why i need the yard to get green.  sorry off topic here are the beautiful wet dandelions.  enjoy...

so pretty

happy spring :)

I have a love/hate feeling toward the blowy things! They are all over my yard too and it drives me nuts but I love blowing them with the kids. Its so fun! I think I'm going to kill all of ours and take to kids to the park to play with them LOL

PS. The wet ones look really cool!

The kiddos love dandy-dee-lions ... they've been blowing around here like crazy the last few days.

I love dandy-dee-lions too.... something so whimsical about them. So real and yet gone so easily.
