Several folks asked what are sand burrs. I've tried to get a few photos but they are hard to show.

 They have pretty little yellow flowers as this one photo shows, but those flowers turn into hard little pea-sized burrs with lots of pointy spikes. They are hard enough to attach to the bottom of shoes (so they get tracked into the motorhome carpet), to puncture bike and golf cart tires, and to hurt the paws of our Homer.

You can see some of the burrs forming on the second photo if you double click on the photo to enlarge it. Doug has been fighting the sand burrs for 3 years. We thought of having all our sod removed and new St. Augustine grass sod put down, but that was way too expensive. So for now, Doug dug up a whole patch of the sand burrs and put down St. Augustine.
