No, this isn’t another one of my tornado posts. Let me start over.
The days are getting longer, the flowers are blooming, the rains are falling. And falling. Torrentially. With lightning and wind. And the constant threat of a tornado.
Darn it, this isn’t a tornado post.
It’s a grass post.
I really do love this time of the year, all things considered. One of the biggest challenges, though, is the way the rain takes the side of the grass and not me. It causes it to grow, but the wet conditions make it hard to cut. We can’t cut it, and it grows. The more it grows, the harder it is to cut.
Seriously, it’s the middle of June before we’re able to just go out and cut the whole yard. To make things worse, my wife and I aren’t yard fanatics. We don’t use chemicals, so our yard is a combination of grasses and, ahem, naturalized plants. (No such thing as a weed.) We like it, but the combination of plants sometimes make it look as if our yard is even more out of control than it is.
Oh well, June is right around the corner.
