Joan, I like your ability to put your thoughts into poetic form.

Oh yes, Dallas, I can hear birds, and buzzing of insects, and mice and little critters chomping on seeds if one is very quiet. Also a breeze and rustling of leaves. The feeling evoked is a pure calm, soft, gentle, nourishing environment.

I'm not creative enough to think of that.  It looks pretty quiet.

Comment by Idaho Spud on May 20, 2012 at 11:11am

I also hear peaceful silence.  I'd love to get out of this noisy city and to a place with that quality.

I think a hear a few bird singly softly and maybe a brook nearby.

Such a lovely photo!

I finally got the garden pictures transferred from off my camera to the computer. I hope you enjoy them.

Wow! That's a really cool picture Dallas. I wish I was there. It's very relaxing.

Dallas, that's a beautiful scene.  Eerie but beautiful.  I could stand there and just stare, for hours.  

On the scented-lawn issue, I gave up on a garden bed that was invaded by grasses and mowed it to start over.  We had garlic and big bunches of garlic chives at the edges, both of which I have elsewhere as well.  My partner came home and commented about the scented lawn.  I let mint grow through the grass, and pull out bunches of mint from the borders and throw them on the lawn before mowing, to get a minty fresh lawn.

Having looked up wild onions now - the ones we had may have been garlic. It seems that wild onions are thin flat leaves and garlic the round tubular ones like those in our Ohio lawn.

Comment by Michael R Mills on May 16, 2012 at 11:35am

The wild onions we had were thin leaved - but were tougher than chives - the leaves also seem to have ridges running the length to the tip. they still smelled great when mowed (& were tasty too).
