Misadventures in Gardening

So about 2 weeks ago I attempt to patch our front lawn with some fresh Bermuda grass. I spent a few hours preparing the soil, spreading the seeds and covering it with topsoil. Like a child I tended to it daily with care. This included watering it multiple times during the day, worrying about it and reading up on whatever tips I could find. Last week I noticed little seedlings and I was so excited. Today I'm not so sure.

You see this is what Bermuda seedlings should look like.

This is what the seedlings in my yard look like

This what the seedlings of a common weed that is in my yard looks like
What I don't get is why are these seedlings just coming up in the exact spots that I sprinkled Bermuda seeds. Well as long as my yard looks like crap I will give it a few more weeks and see what comes of my experiment.

The Real Blogger's of Fresno

If you have been in my Blog circle the past few months you may have noticed that their have been a few incidents of Blog Drama on Ed's blog. It gave me idea for the Swede Festival there should be a Swede entitled the Real Blogger's of Fresno. It of course would be based on Bravo's Real Housewive's series. Ed of course would be pegged as the Inconnect Instigator (why do instigators always claim to be so inconnect?) of course The Fresnan and Gustov would be the fire-pokers (you know the ones who keep the drama going and bring up old drama) and then Mike Oz would be the peace maker. Any ideas? Any Takers?
