Welcome to the Home Sweet Garden Party!
I am so glad you have joined us!
Things are really feeling like summer here at the lake.
Especially since the girls are out of school now.
Today I am sharing my wildflower bed down by the road.
This area kept washing out and grass would not grow easily.
So I added the rocks and made a wildflower bed about 6 years ago.
It is a bit of a mess.
I do not even try to weed it.
Except maybe thistle and poison ivy...
I let it all grow for the bees, birds and butterflies.
I leave all the seedpods on for winter food for the birds.
Years ago I mulched it, but now I just chop it all down in late winter.
I love how natural it is.
We live in an area with huge open fields that bloom similar to this.
We have tons of wildflowers we see on our walks and four-wheeler rides.
I love all the movement and texture.
Most of it is all the grasses that have self seeded.
I have fought them for years, and I have waved the white flag.
My perennials in here are established enough to fight it out.
And anything small is long gone anyway.
Thanks so much for stopping by and please consider becoming a new follower!
