3. I have 'patches'

in the backyard on a dry slope under a huge pine, about 14' by 15'. It's mostly daisy's in full bloom right now. I let the patch get a little bigger every year. In selected areas of the yard I let the grass grow and seed, a bunch here and there. I'd let the whole thing go to seed if I could.

I'm starting a new patch in the front under a weeping beech, it will be a mix of about 20 wildflowers, right now it looks like weeds with a few bachelor buttons and sweet peas. bordered on one side by the creeping juniper that I HATE (but have to keep for erosion control) and on the other by the street. about the same size as the first. The neighbors haven't complained yet, but it was just bare mulch before, now there's a little color.
