These appeared in the lawn at the start of the week - a sure sign that the mowing season will get under way shortly. I decided to dig some out and bring them inside and they were an amusement for several days.
I don't mind them in a lawn, along with buttercups and the odd dandelion. In fact I do like them in a lawn as they add colour. - They all get knocked back anyway when you mow.
Sure, a manicured, weed free, sward can look great but I'm not putting in the work that involves. Our own lawn will gradually shrink as more of it is set to shrubs, ground cover or turned over to growing vegetables.
While not strictly 'on the table' this week I've included this shot of a magnolia about to flower, as it will probably do over the weekend while I'm away - unless the forcast frost gets it first.......
