To the editor:
One of the biggest joys of living in Lawrence is to drive around town and look at the beautiful houses, parks and common areas. And, to add to that, last week we found the beautiful sight of millions of dandelions.
The fine people of Lawrence love their dandelions, as evidenced by the millions of them on Clinton Parkway, Kasold Drive, well, just about on any street, median strip or person’s yard. They cover the yard with a beautiful yellow flower that doesn’t stay long but turns into a ball of seeds ready to spread all over beautiful Douglas County. I am sure, very sure, that there will be more of them next year. And, I am sure the fine citizens of Douglas County love the bright yellow colors; but they turn so fast.
Now, I am not one to mince words about this. I mean, I have to admit that I have fallen in love with the pretty yellow flowers and the thought that there will be more next year makes me yearn for another year. My wife loves them so much she made a dandelion salad that was oh so yummy! Let’s grow more and more dandelions so one day, soon, we won’t have to mow our grass, because there won’t BE any!
