To Mow or Not to Mow

Our lawn has been getting a bit shaggy the last few days, and the white clover has grown up all over the yard.  Yesterday afternoon, I noticed a bevy of bumblebees and butterflies, bouncing from blossom to blossom, drinking in the nectar. 
So, can anyone remind me, why is it we mow?

Connie, if I was single, my lawn would be a prairie. As it is, Fred mows... and I think the process actually relaxes him! You are a good friend, to the bumble bees. xo

It's not right, this mowing business, but ask your favorite Realtor about mistaken presumption of 'curb appeal'

My favorite broker retorts: "I selected Ozark County, MO, to found my business and stay forever with the woman of my dreams due in large part to the fact that there are no curbs here."

P.S. " The fishin' and huntin' ain't bad, either.
