When I was complaining that my front yard meadow wasn't really doing much (in its first year) last summer, a few of you chimed in telling me to just give it some time. Right you were!
This year, the flowers began popping up in early April, and they've bloomed into something beautiful. I'm still interested to see what it will do as the summer progresses. And I still need to re-seed a few patchy areas. But, on the whole, I love it.
It's already full of bees, which is about the best way I can think of to use the space.
