The results were so wonderful that this year we decided to plant a large wildflower bed in the middle of the backyard. Here's some pictures of the wildflower patch, taken on the first morning of summer, a few minutes after the actual solstice.A view of the wildflower bed from the deck
We planted a mixture with lots of cool, as-of-yet unidentified flowers.
Taking a solo, thank you.
