And when (if) I feel ambitious, I sit myself down on the grass and start weeding... tons of this purple Self-heal, or Heal-all, in the lawn, growing in huge clumps. The only islands of green in a sea of burnt yellow grass.
Haven't seen any fairies yet though. I hope I'm not destroying their natural habitat.
I love these Flower Fairies books, I have them all from my childhood. Poems and pictures by Cecily M. Barker.
When little elves have cut themselves,
Or Mouse has hurt her tail,
Or Froggie's arm has come to harm,
This herb will never fail.
The Fairy's skill can cure each ill
And soothe the sorest pain;
She'll bathe, and bind, and soon they'll find
That they are well again.
Just what I need for my foot!

And the Day Lilies are in bloom....
