Most of our yard is filled with weeds. Which is an improvement on the bare dirt that it was when we moved in. Little bits at a time we are reclaiming the space into what we imagine it should look like. Some of the projects have gone slightly awry like the one where I sprinkled wild grass seeds that I had collected around the path to the stone patio area. I was imagining tall grass growing on the side of the path in a sort of wild English garden look. Well, it is definitely a wild sort of look now; and I'm not sure how to tame it. It has turned into a raging beast with a mind of it's own on a quest to take over the world.
My newest idea was to install a white picket fence to create a little area near the house where we could plant some grass. Then I had the brilliant idea to mix the grass seed with an abundance of crimson clover. I'm aware that there are those who consider clover a weed. I am not among them. I love clover. And it feeds my need for instant gratification and immediate results. Plus it's good for the soil, and the bees. And it's green.
