Other people would consider our backyard a disaster, but I love it. There's a whole cycle of life that goes on out there. As the year progresses we see different weeds and other plants spring up, grow and flower, go to seed, and then die. (Have I mentioned the nettleleaf goosefoot before? The leaves are another nice addition to salads.) Our yard attracts moths, butterflies, hummingbirds, all kinds of fascinating worms and bugs. A discarded couch that's laying upside down near the back wall is now hosting a beehive.
Some volunteer tomato plants (descendants of seeds I planted a couple years ago) are starting to fruit already. I did plant some new vegetable seeds in April, we'll see which ones flourish. But right now, it's just beautiful out there. Warm and vibrant and chaotic and humming and full of life.
