    Same here Bobby, not sure what causes it, I think it does have something to do with the amount of rain and erractic temperature changes.

    Yeah, here they are flowering right at ground level this year. What's worse here though is the false dandelion. Almost everywhere is really infested. Ugh!

    Its alright, because we can make money on our weed and feed, this year I've got some requests already from customers who have been too cheap in the past.
    My wife loves the way they look, won't let me put anything down in the backyard.......

    So that's where they came from, thanks guys, please leep the over your side next year!

    The "old man" stops the 560 Mercedes and says Andy there is a daisy on the main lawn, in fact there are 2 of them!!!! so when ! had opened the twin 5 bar gates to let him out I ran up to the main lawn to find the dasies!

    Yup, it's been a plus for me so far. It's helping make up for the lack of early applications I had this year. I am also working an angle on this to use this infestation to my advantage to pick up some additional accounts.

    Lots of dandelion here too. I thought it was just me but apparently not.
