It seems that the weeds and flowers are all dead by my 4th of July holiday weekend and now it is an annual tradition to mow them down. I had a good year with the wild flowers and the late rain helped them to extend a bit longer. But I haven't watered the front yard except for a couple of times this year so far and with the heat of summer everything faded fast. Here is a picture from January of this year of what the front looked like then with a little water. It was all green because the flowers really hadn't started blooming yet.
