The mower may have broken. The bindweed from next door may be rampant. The sandpit might be about to take over the whole garden but oh my; it really is beautiful when it’s left to rack and ruin.

Same here – garden looks pretty with the wild flowers growing away… ahem
I have adopted the same policy as Highgate Cemetary for my garden, which is one of “managed neglect”.
Also, I read a book about wildlife gardening recently and the main thing that I took away from it was how important it is to have a really scruffy (I mean, natural) garden in order to encourage wildlife. I’m pretty sure that’s exactly what it said.
Kind of like my hair looks better when its dirty. Kind of nice to let things be… wild is beautiful.
A meadow to play in….. buttercups to shine up at the sun and happy mini beasts, sounds like heaven xx
Exactly what I think! My neighbour mows his lawn twice a week (whilst wearing coveralls and safety glasses…). As our front lawns meet there is a definite line between his close-cropped neatness and my meadow. I love long grass! And lots of weeds are pretty! I’m glad it’s not just me, but my neighbours are not a fan of my gardening technique…
