I have waay too much to do lately (some of it is actually fun) and I really dislike the number of bugs that attack me when I go outside, so I've let the yard go to hell. One upside of this, aside from the freedom that comes when you just stop caring about something, is the 'pretty' weeds. I'm talking to you, thistle.
This is my new excuse for the state of my landscaping... It's for Art!
