I guess you could totally freak out at the dramatic changes one can even now observe in one's own back yard, but sometimes beautiful blessings come to cheer you up. Such is the case above. This is not a planted "flower bed". This is an area along the church parking lot that grew nothing but an "un-sprayed mixture" of grass and ambitious vegetation. This pastel yarrow, seeded on it's own, from another far area in a flower bed, to spread, unimpeded by the very dry grass to the area shown. I put a little "push in the ground" fence around it to protect it from over zealous mowers. It is thick and beautiful and a great beginning to a prairie meadow lawn. This summer of long dry spells allowed it to show me how pretty that type of lawn "covering" can be- not to mention, the bees and butterflies are having a blast. Nice height too.
