Last year I planted some heleborus winter roses? A meadow flower from croatia. I thought the roofers killed them but they came back! First flowers up here. Crocus too that the old owner planted. Cant wait for the forget me nots to bloom next. They were everywhere, and I spread the seed with a rake and let them go last year. The back yard was basically a field of weeds. Forget me nots, then dandilions, salmon berries, then all hell breaks loose. I tried to mow after each flower was done to encourage them to set seed and do there thing. I hate lawn. This year Im going to try a huge field of sunflowers in the front lawn.
