Some Pics from the Garden

On my primary blog, I sometimes update readers about The Meadow Project. I am allowing a part of my yard to go semi-natural, with wild grasses and flowers. It all started with (aside from too much lawn to mow), noticing how few bees and butterflies I was seeing. Even the dandelions in the grass that always had one honeybee per flower, were just sitting empty. Here are some early to mid-spring shots of the latest developments.

This Red-tailed Hawk’s nest in the oak tree is why the squirrels are agog.

The paths I’m making with surplus leaves.

The pear tree, especially pretty in flower this year.

My seedlings, that I started late March. We keep having cold spells, so only the perennials can go into the garden.
