No Need Weed Killer

My backyard is of woodland nature.  In most part it has a base of moss.  Grass will grow in the few places where the sunlight strikes.  My best landscaping expert is Mother Nature.  I couldn't have chosen a more beautiful carpet of flowering plants. Wordless Wednesday #49~ Springing Wild Flowers showed you some macro shots of the flowers.  Now here is the scenic view.

Tried to weed, seed and mulch.  Erosion happens!

My backyard is full of medicine!
 I have found out the cone like purple plant is "Purple Deadnettle".
According to the Healthly Home Gardening  site that helped me ID these plants,
the Purple Deadnettle has many medicinal purposes.  When you go to the site, look under general information for its many uses.

While we're at it, let's have a salad of Dandelion?  I've never tried it or Dandelion wine either.

Look close for the moss.  Yellow wild strawberry blooms.
Oh, and did I mention a yard full of moles?
