I’m filing this under – Things I Wish I Had Done Last Fall. I love me a good flowery mead and given that I have a dead front lawn, (soon to be revived this spring)- this would have been all the easier.
I never thought about how much more effective it would be to roll back the lawn to achieve this effect. No, I rather daftly dug little individual holes with a bulb planter. Duh….So much simpler this way.

I’m curious — are you the type of person who loves this look (the sort of weedy lawn) or would you view this as a complete denuding of grassy perfection?

Fall is whizzing by but I am trying so hard to keep track of it. That halloween is in less than 2 weeks away is blowing my mind…I just hope that we don’t have a freak early snow again that knocks our power out for a week. I’m not over the 2011 version of that,…
