05.10.2013 Lawn Ornaments :-)

Flowers are job 1 in the spring for me.  We had a slow start this year and I haven’t posted many lately.  Here are two from this evening out in the yard just growing wild in our lawn.  This is why we will never have our lawn treated for that pesky non-grass stuff.  We are perfectly happy dead-heading our dandelions so the rest of the wildflowers will pretty up the yard.Common-Blue-Violet-051013-800FB-NSNWhite-Violet-051013-800FBMore flowers to come. 🙂

  3. It is nice to know that you do not poison nor mow the beauties that grow in your yard. Very good for the environment and a place for capturing stunning photos for others to view.

    • Thanks Yvonne. I never felt that there was any good to come from the lawn treatments other than a boring monoculture and I am sure there is plenty of harm done…at the very least to some of these lovely plants…possibly most all the insects and small mammals are harmed as well. I’d much rather have a nice diverse lawn teeming with life…even the mice and moles. 🙂

    So beautiful. It would be interesting to know their size. They look so delicate.

    • Thanks Rod. They are both about dime sized. I’ll try to get a physical measurement some time soon. They are lovely and delicate flowers and I can’t imagine mowing them down either.
