Afternoon Flowers

Forget-me-nots grow wild around here, such a lovely blue and pinky-purple display in the lawn.

Caught a busy bee enjoying our non-pesticide covered dandelions - later, birds will eat the seeds that result from this pollination. I know that weeds suck when you want to have a nice lawn, but there's a lot of creatures out there that make use of those weeds. We don't use pesticides on our weeds, so we don't make those creatures sick.

I hear that spraying vinegar directly on a weed will kill it down to the root (but be sure to avoid your grass!) - I haven't tried it yet, but it's an option you might try (if you aren't lucky enough to live out in the country, where having weeds on your lawn is more common and accepted than out in the 'burbs).
