No? OK, you can read about it HERE
Well, after 10 years, and four tries to get a lawn going, we finally paid someone to get the job done! The result?
We have a lawn!
The Log pile is gone! We had to pay the gardener to haul it away.
This is going to be a load of work this summer.
We’ll need to eradicate the grubs,
To chase out the moles,
To stop the little dog
from digging big holes!
And Evermore we will have to mow, mow, mow. I think I like Tootlepedal’s lawn better. It is a perfectly mowed postage stamp of short, green, turf, and all surrounded by hedges and gardens. LOOK HERE about half way down the page. He and his wife are always doing something to make it gorgeous and bird worthy.
Why did we do this again? Oh yeah, because the dogs need a lawn so I don’t have a new layer of mud, leaves and dirt on my floors every day.
Now here is a funny thing; growing the lawn successfully has brought on a desire to garden again. I have begun in this corner and will expand it bit by bit.
You see that gazing globe? I have had it for maybe 20 years and never put it out when we moved here. I should have because I really like to look at it, but I was afraid that the wind would blow it over, or a tree branch would smash it. What a waste it has been to own a lovely thing and then leave it wrapped up in the well house for safe keeping. I have taken measures to try to keep it wind worthy. I placed a bit of rebar through the center of the pedestal and pounded it deeply into the ground. The portion that stuck up through the center of the glass ball is well padded and helps to keep everything safe and steady. Now it puts a smile on my face every time I see it.
The grass is always greener where you can actually grow it.
What has spring induced you to do in the garden?
