Yesterday was our first cutting and I got worn out watching my wife cut the yard! Now before you think I am being mean, she WANTS to do it ever since we bought the new riding mower.
For years it was OK for me to ride the smoking red beast, but once the smoke cleared, with a new seat and drink holder, I lost my job. The only time I get to ride it now is when it needs maintenance.
Seeds are popping up all over the place now, but I am purposely delaying my warm weather plantings (even in pots) to try to break up the insect cycle. I would use spun-fiber covers, but our newest dog would have a field day pulling it all up and running wild across the yard. Nothing is sacred.
The first litter of cats has been born, but strangely it is only one kitten. If we could only be that lucky with all of them, but fate will catch up with our luck. The other prospective Mommas have become hard to get near. One has disappeared for days at a time, so I bet she has already given birth somewhere "out there".
Enjoy a beautiful day.
