Day 3: Mow a meadow
Day 3 of 30 Days Wild and it's time to tackle the lawn. One of my favourite activities from last year was the polka dots I grew on the lawn. It was so interesting to see what appeared when it was left to nature. I have to say though that it was a bit of a pain to mow around circles so, this year, it's a far easier rectangle.
I marked it out with canes and then carefully mowed around.
The twist is that I've also raked in some wildflower seeds to see if I can grow a mini-meadow. This packet was on sale and therefore the bargain price of 50p! It might not work but it's worth a try.
The teepees mark the spot!
Elsewhere in the garden, my oriental poppy has started to flower. I just love its dark interior.
And a yellow iris has appeared as if by magic. Can't wait for the spikes to unfurl to see what's hidden inside! x
