Its That Time of Year Again

Its Dandelion Time Again

Premier location at Bangor Town entrance

Every year, it seems like, Some of us start to complain about the dandelion growth around the town.

Usually the greatest culprit is the Ring Road and the profusion of the colour yellow. This colourful display turns to white which then blows in the wind to our gardens. There the weed propagates

Sadly there are those who will tell us that the bees love the dandelions! however I carefully studied this theory last year and could not observe a single bee on our road verges enjoying all those contaminates on the dandelions. Some roadside honey anyone.

The picture above is the prominent display beside the Post Office, a prime location at the entrance to our Town. As some of you will be aware I complained about the profusion of weeds last year, seem no lessons have been learned. However!! perhaps Council has now become aware of that miracle new invention, weed killer I think it’s called.

That aside, would you think that even in the Ards Rules Council some North Down councillor would take the mater in hand. Perhaps it’s a case of they need removed, just like the weeds.

I do believe that if Council cannot maintain this display to even a minimum standard it should be replaced by one of the large screen displays which could advertise what’s happening in the Town.
