The Oxalis Scourge

Not much happened today. All of us doggies got to go to the bagel shop in the big car. We just went along for the ride. Mom ate her bagel and drank her coffee and read her newspaper in the car just to be us! Then Mom went over to a friend's house for lunch and we stayed home. When she came back Mom and I did some weeding. I just kept watch looking out for danger; that Cooper's hawk might try to come back into my territory! Mom does all the weeding work. She's pulling up these pretty yellow flowers with shamrock-like leaves. I think they are kind of cute but Mom hates them.

Mom says she is not alone in despising the oxalis weed. Apparently there was an article about the scourge of oxalis just yesterday in the San Francisco Chronicle.

Oxalis haunts gardener's dreams:
Rainy-season endeavor requires kneepads and mindless endurance
