Time for a breather from all the yard work! I'm sure the neighbors appreciate the fact that we are now beginning the process of mowing down the expired wildflowers from parts of our yard. Saving the pasture mowing until late June so the bees and butterflies can continue to take advantage of the variety of flowers found there. Though the yard looks wild and overgrown, there is still a beauty in the wildness. The birds, along with the bees and other insects, have enjoyed our beautiful mess. Some patches with a dense population of flowers can still be seen growing in the yard. We just can't bring ourselves to mow these beauties down when bees are found buzzing all about collecting pollen and nectar.
