The First Mowing in Suburbia

Here in Average Suburbia, the first spring lawn mowing is paramount.  Yesterday I did my hay cutting part.  You could have bailed some of it, it was so thick from rain.  Happily, native violets (my birth flower) are taking over the lawn along with all the dandelions.  No chance of those essential-to-wildlife plants being decimated by me.

Then I planted most of my rooted potted flowers, herbs, and small shrubs around the yard.  Next up are the younger seedlings in trays.  It’s challenging in a small rented suburban yard to find ways to restore eco-friendly natural habitats.  If nothing else, I’ll leave this place a little more flowery and less non-native than I found it.

Here are some misc. plantings, both previously here and introduced.
