hold the lawnmower

The lawn doesn't get mown very often round here. And that's a good thing. It means I get to enjoy all the random flowers and leaves growing in amongst it, and the exciting varieties of height and leaf shape throughout it. At the moment we have lots of these:

They remind me of when I was a child and I would pick them and blow, blow, blow! till all the seeds were spread to the wind. How many puffs would it take this time?

Cute wee sparrows on the roof!

What wonders do you find in your garden?
