Neal mowed my lawn for the first time this year. It was pretty tall; I was surprised I hadn't had a warning from the city yet. When we got back from the raptor center, guess what I found in my mailbox? Fortunately it was only for the front and sides, which Neal had just mown. The back needs a lot of work too but I guess they overlooked it.
Neal also made me a new raised bed and filled it with compost. I made the compost. That was my contribution.
The new person in our Tawanda book group has a beautiful front lawn, all wildflowers with occasional clumps of buffalo grass. I went over there to lend her our May book. She answered the door holding her puppy. I handed her the book, said, "I'll trade you," and took the puppy. So soft!
