I managed a trip downtown the other day. It was actually a trip to the dentist, but I got to the library too, although that was only for drop-off and pick-up. I find everyone who I encounter very helpful. The librarian took the returning books out of the pack on the back of my wheelchair and put in the new ones. The dental technician held the door open. But as I neared home I realized I hadn't taken a single picture at all.

Dandelions and Buttercups
So I stopped along the hill when I noticed this wild apple tree in bloom and snapped a picture for you.
Right beside it was this sign stuck in the ground. There seems to be a rash of pet owners dropping their little plastic bags of dog poop wherever they find an uncared for spot like this ditch, something that I just can't fathom!
Closer to home I did enjoy the second flush of Dandelions in bloom.
What I noticed was that when dandelion flowers go to seed the stems of those flowers shoot right up to hold the seed head above the surrounding vegetation, not uncommonly as high as 16" Have you ever noticed that? Maybe our dandelions are just weird!
