The title of this particular blog may flash visualizations of a lawn mower to include a rake, perhaps a pair of gloves and the safety of having to wear socks and [work] shoes, so be it.
In order to get myself away from this computer – to enjoy the limited days’ sunshine and look/scan/admire what my neighbors’ paid-for-gardeners have accomplished – I do it myself. Ahh, spring! It brings forth such energy!
My accomplishments include six hours of (1.) mowing the front lawn. The back yard is another days’ story. Not liking the way the grass edges were crookedly meeting with the sidewalk, (2.) I killed it. Yep, just ripped it out and put the excess in the “Green Waste Bucket [barrel].” Onto the front yard walkway, (3.) I couldn’t help but think of my mailman, wondering if he would, in fact, comment on any possible improvements. He never does, he’s in such a hurry to get his chores done. Without his opinion, I used my imagination.
Onward I go!! In the end, my picking, pulling, weeding, chopping, cutting, electrified hedging, de-rooting, de-weeding, etc. etc. etc., looks glorious – to me.
And that is what matters on this beautiful day!
