First mowing
I don't think I normally manage to get the first mowing of the year done so early, but the neighbours had mowed theirs, so their half of the front grass looked pristine whilst our half looked decidedly unkempt. Also the weather has been dry for a couple of days so it seemed like the perfect opportunity.

The upside to doing it early is that it's not difficult to do and so I merely feel righteous rather than exhausted. :)

The forecast says it will be sunny tomorrow too, so I might even make a start on the back garden...

Current Mood: pleased pleased

The dog's claws have done horrible damage to our grass (I won't call it a lawn) as she's raced up and down after her ball while it was wet and vulnerable. Now where it used to be thick and springy there are lots of bald patches, with some areas being more bare earth than grass. We've bought tough grass seed, but it's almost like starting from scratch.

I mowed ours for the first time this year last week and felt smug, since normally I'm way, way behind my neighbors, and this time I was first. HA! (On the other hand, I only did the very front of the lawn--I left the part nearer to the house uncut as it has violets and other flowers blooming in it.)
