Ahh … cool weather


I rarely post photos of myself, but today I’ll make an exception. James-Michael, a friend visiting from California, took this photo of me mowing beside the driveway.

It’s amazing how weather makes all the difference. Mowing the grass in the heat of summer is a miserable job. But when it’s 69F out, mowing is a joy. The area behind me, by the way, is what I call the rabbit patch. The area used to be covered with pine trees, which I removed in February of 2008. The area is very steep and very rough, so I’m letting it go back to woods. I planted four arbor vitae trees below the driveway. They’re doing well, and the deer leave them alone.

The Snapper mower, by the way, does a beautiful job mowing the steep and uneven grounds of Acorn Abbey. It’s the Jeep of lawn mowers.
