The previous owner of our house was a real gardening fanatic; she must've spent half her waking hours planting and weeding. Let's just say that the flower beds don't get quite so much attention these days. I generally prefer the survival-of-the-fittest approach to lawn and garden care. Darwin knew a good thing when he saw it.
Nevertheless, even after 3 years of total neglect, we still get hundreds of flowers blooming around the yard in a nice, orderly sequence, although there's some pretty stiff competition with the weeds.
Definitely makes me think I should paint flowers more often. I really should.
