The whole front yard looks like a garden sometimes

We've recently stopped cutting much of the front yard. We're hoping it will eventually grow up in birch and oak and give us a little more privacy from the road. I'm hoping to get some native wildflowers established in the sunny areas, too.

Meanwhile, though, I have to say that Spring brings out the beauty of even the invasive plants. Only some of the grasses and possibly some of the yellow hawkweeds are native here--the rest of the flowers you see in the grass are exotics. Including the Shasta daisies, which turn out to be some of the more problematic weeds we have in the area...you'll see why in the last few shots.
