When you're driving past our yard on the highway, did you ever notice the "Do Not Mow or Spray" signs along the road ditch? Know where they came from? That's right, I bought them with my own money and put them up and you know what? The highway department hasn't mowed or sprayed since I put them up probably 8 years ago! Red-Winged Blackbirds have nested in the ditch and you should see the butterflies every summer.
I love the wildness and untidy look of my yard and I'm working on Rick to try and accept this also. Since I'm the official groundskeeper now, I guess he's just going to have to learn to live with it. "Happy Wife, Happy Life"
