Ms Beth! What a wonderful effect. We live in a development called "Wildflowers at Hillview" Only they went and plowed under all the wildflowers.
Our lot here in Newfoundland is all natural. We are just going from the "buttercup" season and into the daisy season. Coming up will be the wild roses, candle orchids and a few I can't remember. Will send a picture soon.
Congratulations on the wonderful garden

Love that, Beth. I did the same last year and much of it came back this year.
Greetings, Andrea
