Lawn

Our lawn in our back garden, is rather more clover than grass, but that's just as we like it.  The bees like it too and the ants, beetles, birds,etc.  With the clover in flower, it looks good too, but placing the camera on the ground, gives one an ant's-eye view of what's going on.  It looks even better from this angle.
White Clover is joined in parts by the smaller-flowered Yellow Suckling Clover, all helping to fix nitrogen into the soil and providing much needed nectar for the insects.
It all looks so good from 'down here', it almost makes you wish you were an insect.
