Our landlord is a meanie. We've been rather happy letting our lawn just grow and grow since we can't get the mowers to work anyway. We have the most beautiful flowers: orange & yellow hawkweek, white & purple clover, daisies, daisy flea bane, pointed blue-eyed grass, rough-fruited cinquefoil, white campion, common speedwell, dandelions, even wild basil... so many pretty weeds... (More plants here...)

I wish all the flowers showed up better... (Feeder needs filling...)

Again I wish the flowers showed up better... You can see some of the small bare patches...

That's what happens in the country you know. I don't think anyone ever planted any *real* grass on the property... And the snow left big brown patches of death that are finally getting smaller and greener. All the grasses have gone to seed, and I imagine are spreading throughout the yard. (Yay! Free grass seed!) But now the meanie landlord says we have to mow. And we can't have our garden in the very best spot in the yard because the leech field is there. Poop. (Ha ha, no pun was intended, but it's there! LOL!) Back to square one.
