    Susan, congrats on scoring the cover shot! Well-deserved. As for my yard, it is so big that mowing will likely always be part of it. But I’ve chopped it up enough with plantings to make annoy my husband.

    I would LOVE to convince my husband to go no-mow. We’ll have to see what I can do.

    I am swooning over the meadow at the Olbrich Botanical Garden! Love the species tulips scattered among the grasses. I remember Olbrich from when I lived in Wisconsin – a small but wonderful garden.
