Eileen over at her blog Organic Gardening for the Clueless has discovered that leaving the leaves in the garden and the dead heads to bob in the wind is actually not so clueless... it's good environmental science. The leaves turn to compost, the odd seed heads provide winter munchies for the birds. And, now, WILD BEES are also benefited by my messy yard!
Turns out that winter is the prime season for the lazy gardener... I personally wonder how I can convince my neighbors of this in my pretty pristine retirement ghetto? (I do care what my neighbors think, alas).
