I will add that DoveTale Stitch ( based on the split backstitch) to the Glossary eventually. This site needs some attention. But I'm going outside. Taking my time has been, in perspective, my greatest tool.
When you mow all the time, you rarely get to see the full cycle of growth.
So wild strawberries, yes, but I recently learned there are 2 kinds. The flowers were white back at the other place. The yellow flowering kind here are mock wild strawberries. Still gets berries if I don't mow, but small and a bit tasteless. They are so beautiful as a "lawn" The birds love them and my neighbor eats the leaves in salad. No mowing here anymore , just a path through for walking, to avoid ticks. Will do that today. And then a partial mow after all has bloomed, to feed the compost. I have found a lot of wild thyme growing too. You can mow that and walk on it and it seems to do just fine. I will encourage it to continue. Maybe a Path of Thyme.
