The neighbor came over a few days ago and asked me what I was going
to do about the jungle in my backyard, referring to the area spilling
out of the ravine that we've let remain wild and bushy. I told him
we'd be leaving it, that we liked it. He looked at me as though I had
fallen from mars.
This is the first year, turn of seasons, with this yard. So, there is
the continual discovery of something new... wildflower mementos left
by the previous owner. I convinced John that we didn't need to keep
mowing the whole yard, that we could leave hillocks of wildflowers
and bushes. He agreed. A part of me wonders what I'm missing by
mowing any of the yard at all... but another part is just glad to
have the jungle.
