No Mow May, let your lawn grow when spring arrives

The UK-based organisation Plantlife is bringing back No Mow May this year, a movement calling people to liberate their lawns starting on May 1! 🌼🌷🌻

We’ve lost nearly 97% of flower-rich meadows since the 1970s and with them gone are vital food needed by pollinators, like bees and butterflies. We can't continue like that. "We encourage everyone to free lawns like never before". Thanks to their campaign, thousands of individuals have been leaving their mowers in the garage for several years, and observing what is happening in their gardens when they refrain from cutting their lawns. Wildflowers and grass can grow wild and provide a feast for pollinators, insects, and birds. Tall grass also retains moisture, which better protects the soil from drought, and helps store carbon. In total, if everyone in the UK took part in a mow-free month, that would be almost 100,000 tonnes less CO2 equivalent in the atmosphere, estimates Plantflife. That's about what 10,000 English people emit in a yea
And importantly, leaving the lawn in your garden grow is also good for humans, as it gives people more time to enjoy green spaces and connect with nature.

          The dandelions are out in full force in my little garden much to my neighbour's dismay.

              A great calling here. My little girl had raised the same idea, she loves the wild weeds & flowers when they sprout after the rains.
