Never has my garden been so neglected as this year. The broken ankle had a lot to do with it. So I let everything grow.
Conclusion: In all our 36 years here I have never seen so many butterflies and bees, birds of all sorts too. It is just great.
So obviously they do not know the difference between buttercups which invade all, wild morning glories, dandelions and my 35.00 special Japanese maple also in bloom.
I think I will let it be till next spring and then maybe, just maybe, I may do some weeding.
