We hear a lot today about changing our ideas about what beauty is. For the past few years Dove soap has been running great ads to demonstrate that point.
So too, we need to start rethinking about what we find beautiful outside in our yards. When I drive by a well manicured, weed-less yard, I have begun to think of it as a photo-shopped woman in a magazine ad. Not real. You can't really get a yard like that without stripping away something life giving, or adding dangerous chemicals.
Let's stop thinking about a prairie field as weeds, and start thinking about it as a beautiful home filled with marvelous diversity.
