The Lawn Ranger

A philosopher who said that work well done never needs doing over never weeded a garden. Ray D. Everson

Is it just me, or are weeds sentient plant life? I swear they are, because I will pull some out of the garden, turn my back and devote my attention elsewhere (like to the kids and the hose and the soaking wet clothes and the ruined sidewalk chalk . . .), and when I make it back to the garden I notice that there are more weeds in the spot I just cleared. And creepily? They are not in the exact same spot, they are about an inch to the left or right. I know I would have seen them when I was pulling out their kinfolk - heck, I would have pulled them out too! They know, I'm telling you, they know . . .

  1. It's the squirrels!! Seriously, we have some really smart squirrels that live in our yard. They know which branches are high enough to taunt the dogs in safety. And I'm pretty sure that after I've pulled the baby oak trees from our flower beds they put the acorns back!


Go ahead and say it. You know you want to.
