I usually show you what is growing in my gardens. This Nature Notebook entry features what is growing in the wild edges and the untended areas of our property. After many days of rain (and more to come) mushrooms are springing up all over the yard.
Campion, Buttercups, Field Daisies, Clover and both orange and yellow Hawkweed are blooming where the "grass" has not been mowed (our lawn and fields are mostly wildflowers and a variety of grasses, rather than actual grass.)
"My only desire is an intimate infusion with nature, and the only fate I wish is to have worked and lived in harmony with her laws."~ Claude Monet
