ON SPARROWS AND DANDELIONS. I remember the delight of dandelions. I remember the delight of sparrows. I was about the same age when I found out they were both pests. Since then I’ve been fighting them. Pulled up dandelions the other day and also closed up the martin house so the sparrows couldn’t nest in it. Few days later, we opened the martin house and got martins. Still fighting the dandelions. Will fight the sparrows again next spring.
Dandelions are easy to grow, they have pretty yellow flowers, tall straight stems, and nice fluffy seeds. Sparrows are pretty little birds. Even science classifies them as song birds. I have complained that life gets too complicated. Maybe it gets that way because we make it that way.
It would be so much easier to let dandelions grow and sparrows sing.
Since I posted about dandelions yesterday, I decided to post this little bit that I wrote several years ago Happy Dandelion Day! – joking
