Ahhhhhh, that's better! I love walking through dewy grass in bare feet, not that there's much in the way of grass on my back lawn this weekend. My wild and woolly lawn has morphed into meadow of sorts this month, which even NAH admits looks attractive*.
It's also proved a great source for my Flowers for mum project so far, yielding self-sown perennial cornflowers, lamb's ears, and lemon balm in addition to the blooms you can see. These originated from elsewhere in the garden, the ox-eye daisies must have blown in from the A350 nearby.
* = he got very stroppy about the weeds aka self-sown foxgloves in the lawn one year, so he's come along a bit since then.
Skimble's demanding to say hello to you too. He does enjoy the patio when it warms up.

The Nectaroscordum are a revelation. I planted the bulbs around 2 years ago, but it's only this year they've bloomed properly. The bees gather around the flowers, and it's such fun to watch their antics from the comfort of our kitchen.
