So instead, it is all wind and free, like Klimt's garden. There are so many spider webs that one can scarcely cross a space of 5 feet without becoming entangled. I can see them from my kitchen window, long diagonals across the width of the yard, catch the sun now and again in a breeze. The garden is overgrown, but somehow still faithfully producing tomatoes and watermelon. Clover and various ground covers now take the place of grass in most of the yard.
I can appreciate a well-kept yard. All neat and even, nice for picnics and lawn parties. But this is beautiful to me. There's so much to explore!
|It's taking over the driveway!|
|There's a wasp nest in the fence. Yikes.|
|This is a good 6 inches deep.|
|Uh, yeah, these chairs need to go.|
|These flowers are loving this moist, shady summer.|
|Watermelons grown in red clay. Sweet, if small.|
|This garden spider is almost 2 inches, including legs.|
|The kids pretty much stay in the driveway.|
|Clover, snakeberries and grasses mingle.|
|The inevitable guest.|
