One of the great advantages of rural living is a different mindset about lawns. We don’t fertilize or spread herbicides, preferring a much more natural look to the fields that surround our house. Add in an abundance of both rain and sunshine this spring, and our fields are alive with spring wildflowers.
We do mow the fields periodically, good protection from both wildfires and larger wildlife, though there is plenty of wild in the rhododendron and forest surrounding us. The first mowing typically occurs by mid-May, so it is time for me to fire up the tractor and hook up the mowing deck. But as I looked out this morning at the wildflowers glistening in the sunrise, I decided to spend the morning with the camera instead. Hope you enjoy.
