So we decided to do No Mow May, a movement to help pollinators as they come out of hibernation.
Our intentions were good. Nevertheless, there are rules in town. By the latter part of May we wound up mowing our front lawn to avoid a fine.
The backyard is a different story.
I could hardly believe how quickly grass grows!
The grass and weeds seemed to take over at such a pace! It was wild!
The rabbits, squirrels and chipmunks just loved it!
When grass grows too long it is quite a chore to try and cut it down.
We will continue to trim our backyard grass and weeds.
We do not spray our plants or lawn with pesticides nor do we harm the ecological environment with noxious chemicals to keep the bugs at bay.
It was good to do No Mow May for a couple of reasons.
We gave the pollinators a break so they could enjoy the long grasses, and we didn’t mow the backyard for a month!
I’ve seen some bumble bees in our garden.
That’s another good sign that we did OK with No Mow May!
P.S. We saw a hummingbird bird in our backyard for the 1st time. Even though we don’t put out hummingbird feeders we have flowers for them!
