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.

SB, you should put that on the homepage.

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.

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).

Perhaps, but they were thin leaves, just like chives. Wouldn't onions be thicker-leaved.

Here's a neat idea, or at least I think so. I once lived in a duplex that had chives in the front yard -- either planted or just sprung up on their own. Every time I mowed the yard the scent of chives would fill the air. I loved it. If you don't require a "perfect" lawn, plant chives or other aromatic herbs along with the grass and then enjoy the smell when you mow.

Neat Sandi.
