We have Blooms! Apr 23, 2008 | 11:15 AM PST
Today I have a full flush of blooms on my miniature iris patch. Here is a quick photo of the first couple. I had to go home on my lunch hour to catch them. It always seems that the blooms fade so fast. I'm sure I just get busy and don't notice the time passing.
After taking pictures of my new blooms I also noticed more blooms that I am not excited about at all... Dandelions. I proceeded to dig out as many as I could in my remaining time at home. I dug out a bunch in the backyard a few years ago and it seems to have reduced them quite a bit. I hope it works as well in the front yard.
Does anyone have a proven method of getting rid of these things for good?
