Small white flowers in my Grass

When the lawn gets long and disheveled (I don't like to mow often), there is a bonus: small wildflowers blooming in profusion amid the grass. I can think of dandelions as wildflowers rather than weeds because they are truly quite lovely when blooming in great golden sweeps across lawns and fields, as they are now. Since my lawn is mostly weeds––witch grass (or maybe it's crabgrass, but they call it witch grass around here) and a variety of other plants, with very little actual grass––I don't worry about dandelions; their leaves are green, after all.

The warm yellow of the dandelion flowers sings loudly next to the more delicate purple of violets.

The violets can seem grand next to the tiny flowers of wild strawberries.

There are also tiny delicate white violets scattered about.

Big white, soft, cloud-like masses appear in a couple of places in the lawn, made up of fluffy-headed flowers nodding on gray-green stems. I don't know what they're called, but one of my readers can probably let us know. I took these photos yesterday and this morning, knowing I'd be mowing and many of the flowers' heads would be lopped off. But they are survivors and many will pop back up again soon; some of the dandelions even manage to grow low enough to evade the cutting blades. Now my lawn looks very orderly, though not quite as festive.

Building was completed and appraisal of the house was in the millions due to a sliver of an ocean view from its location on the steep hill. All was pretty OK as he was now beginning to address the runoff problem by starting to plant grass and small flowers (Logically that would do nothing for the immense size of the hillside). Now came the beginning of my struggles and frustrations. My family had taken a trip to England and was gone for 2 weeks. We came back to a broken and uneven street directly in front of our driveway. We questioned Bob about the street work which he had started. The roadwork was then somewhat completed in the next few weeks

'Under the gun: a Palestinian journey'
By Ahdaf Soueif, published in The Guardian Online, Monday 18 December 2000
Earlier this month, the Guardian sent acclaimed novelist Ahdaf Soueif to Israel and the occupied territories. This is the searing account of her journey.
I have never, to my knowledge, seen an Israeli except on television. I have never spoken to one. I cannot say I have wanted to. My life, like the life of every Egyptian of my generation, has been overcast by the shadow of Israel. I have longed to go to Palestine, but have not wished to go to Israel. And now I am going there. I have not felt such anticipation or such fear since I was a child. For the past two months I have been following the news of the intifada. I have compared the images on the BBC and...
