Since we cut back the long grass and raked away the matted dead stuff, small flowers have begun to surface.  Lots of clover, both red and white, various vetchlings, bird’s foot trefoil, silverweed, cinquefoil, different meadow grasses, and more.  We continue to rake and clear the ground, without interfering with the flowers.  The aim is to keep it natural and , of course, save on work.  Too much work is never worth it!  The flowers will come naturally anyhow, regardless of the amount of work we put into it.  It is lovely to watch the amazing rewards for a little effort.
