Very pretty! My back field of wildflowers are just about ready to open. They are doing better this year, even though behind in rain, more than we had last year.

even though we have not gotten a lot of rain there has been a lot of dew on the ground and plants in the morning and I think that makes the plants grow faster .I mowed my grass on the 3rd of this month and had to mow again ,but I do keep my mower blades at 4 for the side yards and 5 for the front hill .

I cut at 3.5 inches the field and the main yard. The field I have been cutting just once every other time. Cut it yesterday and left all the buttercups growing lol, patches of high grass and flowers all over the field.

Lots of pretty ones blooming at your house too tmann. Love the Peony's and they had some of those down there at that trailer where I got the Bleeding Hearts but I didn't dig those up as they were full of grass and weeds and hard to dig. Are you able to keep your Hosta's looking nice all summer cuz mine kinda start to look ratty and get full of holes. This year tho I put lots of slug bait out around them. But think also the sun burns them even if they just get a little.

I haven't had any problems with my hostas, except if it get really hot the leaves will begin to burn. However most of mine get enough shade where it is not a problem.

I think it's the afternoon sun here that gets mine.........not enough shady places. They are in the shade all day but then here comes that afternoon hot sun and they burn some.
