It’s spring, and after a harsh winter, Nature blesses us with the beauty of flowers.
But we don’t like them. They are too small.
They’re not in the right place.
They’re weeds! Yuck!
So we pull them up. We spray weed killer on them. We fertilize our lawns with chemicals that seep into our ground water, when all we had to do was mulch up the leaves from last fall and leave them on the ground. Then we plant the “right” kinds of flowers, putting them in the “right” places.
All that hard work to have a “perfect” lawn, when Nature had already done all the work for free.
We humans are such pompous bastards.
