No toilet planters: no rusty vehicles.

I'd prefer to have a 'meadow' 12 months per year, but Mother Nature doesn't cooperate - if I don't mow eventually, I get the forest reclaiming the yard, and that is bad from a fire perspective. :eek::eek:

I'll start mowing after full redbud bloom, probably within 10 days.

FYI, no neighbors are close enough to see whether or not I mow. :pk:

Nice stand of bee food Graham. It reminds me of my yard except I didn't see any white clover blooming. Mine can be seen from the road, but I don't care. When the purple dead nettle finally quits yielding, I'll mow it down and rake it up for the compost pile.

What a very lovely yard you have there Graham.
I'm hoping there's 1 good shade tree with a small table, a few chairs, and a BBQ in place to spend quality R&R time.

Where I live the Callery pears (wild pear trees from SE Asia) flower buds are opening. I can mow the grass then because the bees have no interest in the clover, dandelion, etc. Last year I had been feeding 1:1 syrup and once the pears bloomed I only saw a few bees taking syrup.
