What Stops Me In My Tracks?

A billowy dandelion a few steps from my front door. I see them occasionally in the lawn when they are in flower, but they rarely ever make it to this stage due to vigilant weeding (with my trusty weed-hound) and mulching. I must admit I was a bit charmed by this "Make-a Wish" moment, and I just let it be. I like things tidy, but not necessarily perfect.

Oh yes, I get the occasional urge to blow and set the little dandelion parachutes sailing on the wind.

that's funny! how a single, unassuming weed like that can stop you dead in your tracks!
