Grass is high

Now that summer is here, the wild grass and dandelions around my house have become waist high, and I'm afraid they would consume my house if I don't do something about them.  I'd somewhat noticed the situation before July, but it was cold outside and I didn't want to go weeding when it's cold out.  I rather regret that now, because now there is an impossible amount to do at once. 

For a while I felt paralyzed by this knowledge, until I remembered the Flylady philosphy that you can do anything for 15 minutes.  So, armed with a few new garden tools, I've been attacking the weeds around the walkway 15 minutes at a time.  At this rate, it will take me the rest of the summer to finish.

I've never seen dandelion plants as big as these.  They are nearly as tall as I am with bases as big as my head.  I can not dig them up with a mere garden trowel.  I have to use the full size spade.  That song from the movie Office Space goes through my head as I attack these Weedzillas.  I jump onto the spade with both feet singing "Die @#$%! die, die @#$%! die!" in my head.
