I mowed, and mowed, and mowed today. It looks nice, though.
Here is black raspberries, getting ready to make some fruit. They line the edge of the property, and we always get a good harvest.
This bed has a lot of iris, because it's one of the plants that will thrive with the black walnut trees so close.
A close-up of an iris I was given last summer by a friend.
We leave a couple of patches of pussyfoot to bloom in the grass for various bees and native pollinators. We mow it down before it goes to seed. It's very cheerful looking.
