I am a big believer in procrastination…particularly when it comes to yard work. Once upon a time I was a devoted gardener who wouldn’t let a spring day pass without spending some time eradicating baby weeds before they grew into the monster, flowering, seed-dropping weeds of summer. My flower beds looked great.
Then one spring I got busy (possibly lazy) and didn’t get to my garden until much later. I found so many wonderful surprises! I had sunflowers coming up where last year’s had grown and I had sunflowers coming up where none had ever been planted! Violas, lemon balm, lavender, lamb’s ear, alyssum, and more, decided to fill some of the empty spaces between the plants who “belonged”. I was happy to have free plants; I left some where they had put themselves and moved others.
