I wish u can change island name. My dumb*** sister who abuses me told me that I had to name my island after her. I don't wanna reset but I don't want that name

Every island has a variety of weeds. I noticed they can look like clovers one day and then they can stick out the next. Sometimes when I pick them up and plant them back they change.

I have found that the weeds change depending on season. I am in June atm and my weeds are like above instead of clovers
