The Spring lawns bless me with a breathtaking display - masses of violets and violas. In late May this will be a blanket of white clover. The bees and early butterflies gorge on nectar and pollen, a victory for both of us.
Every year I mount a watchful defense against overspray by golf course owners and certain neighbors who religiously treat their property with chemicals, their goals of green (and sterile) grass lawns.
There's just no comparison between a living, beneficial lawn and the artificial turf others aspire to. What's in your yard?
