Can you paint the clover instead of spraying it? No drifting that way.

It's either Mama Bear or Papa Bear around here; never seems to be Baby 
Bear's turn.

I don't mind clover in a lawn and don't bother doing anything about it
until 
it reaches threatening levels.  If it looks like it's going to take over
and 
destroy the lawn, a little weed b gone does the trick, though with
clover it 
usually takes 2 apps.   I've had a patch in the back yard slowly
spreading 
the past few years and I knew I'd have to do something this year.  This 
spring, it suddenly pulled out all the stops and grew with a vengence. 
Instead of hugging the ground, it was leaping a foot high (only a slight

exaggeration)  with leaves 5 x (no exaggeration) the normal size.  It's 
time.  It's been time for months now.

This area is in a direct line of travel from the backyard to the front.
In 
April I'm traipsing thru there too much to be spraying it.  In May, it 
rained (can't spray if it will rain the next day) until toward the end
of 
the month when it suddenly turned 90 degrees (can't spray over 85)  The
heat 
came down again, but only because it rained again.  But now it's in the
70s 
and the rain is past us, so I can spray - except that it is so windy, I 
don't dare.  With all the moisture it just keeps growing so I have to
mow, 
knowing I'd rather have it longish to grab more herbicide.  It's June
now 
and I've read that it's going to be a hot summer.  How soon will the 90s

return?

So what would you do?  This is a tough area to maneuver around, but I
can do 
it.  It's just the damned "conditions".
