Saturday Photo: Summertime and the Grass Is A-growin'
I'm always of two minds about overgrown, shaggy spaces. A weed, after all, is just a plant growing where you don't want it, right? And my own approach to gardening is what I call Darwinan. In other words, what grows, grows. Sometimes the unplanned array of flowers is truly wonderful.
But then there are yards where people have opted for grass and yet who don't do anything about what grows there until it becomes a grass fire hazard. With just a little thought they could have a low maintenance yard that is a delight for birds and butterflies and also is easy on the eyes too.
