Wild flowers in our back yard

Last fall Steve and his brother tore down an old shed in our back yard. This spring Steve worked the soil up with the rototiller. I had wanted to plant some asparagus roots or raspberry bushes in that spot but just never got around to doing it. Steve found a package of wild flower seeds in the garage and decided to scatter the seeds in the area and see what happens. He was a bit more optimistic than I was. We have both been pleasantly surprised with the results. I guess I should have spent a little more time out there doing some weeding but it truly does look like a field of wild flowers. This is what we see from our kitchen windows.
