Today was the first sunny day in a week and a half, we’ve either had rain or cloudy gloom but today, glorious sun. We took the day as it came, reading, relaxing, trimming roses, playing in boxes, riding bikes, filling the fountain and mowing.
We have a reel mower which means we can easily mow the grass while the kids are playing in the same yard. I like it and I hate it about equally. We have a LOT of lawn not grass so much but green stuff that grows fast especially when it’s rainy. I like the reel mower because it’s quiet, doesn’t stink and it doesn’t hurl things out at inopportune times like rocks and legos. What it also doesn’t do is cut very well, it leaves tall stuff pretty much errr tall and just knocks it over for a while. It doesn’t do corners, close trimming or a really good job on short stuff either. So why bother? I don’t know, I like not having to buy gas or replace windows because I threw a rock at it with a mower. Plus the arms and abs workout is awesome!
and it didn’t chop this little guy up either:
he was a welcome find
and he liked clover
and when he left the dog took over being cute
as well as the boy
then a storm rolled in and our sunny day went gray. Ah well it was bedtime anyway and we’re glad the sun went behind some clouds. It can be tough to sleep in all this sunshine!
What kind of mower do you use? Have you found frogs this year? This was our first!
