While clearing away yet more molehills from my front lawn the other day, I made an observation which is almost certainly pure coincidence, but which I record here for posterity, in case it turns out to be remarkably profound:
The holes in the middle of molehills almost invariably appear right underneath or immediately adjacent to dandelion plants. I wonder if moles deliberately choose to make their tunnel entrances next to dandelions. Perhaps dandelion roots are a good indication of where it is sensible/safe to surface.
That is all.
