I copy that - am waiting for The Men to arrive and mow the lawns (sorry, pampas grass :rolleyes:). It's so tufty that it's dangerous, and bouncy, to walk on !!

There has been much advice from wildlife experts to cut down on the frequency of lawn mowing to give the wild flowers a chance which in turn benefits the bees and other insects. I have been putting this into practice and now have a very fine white clover lawn along with other random self seeded flowers. It is attracting the bees as I've seen Honey and Bumbles enjoying it. The thing is where do you draw the line? If I let it go to seed I will have nothing but clover next year and it currently looks very untidy to the uninformed viewer. I'm very sorry flying insects but party time is over as later this week the mower will be unleashed once again! :nod:
