First Haircut of the Year.....

17 comments


The sun is shining albeit a tad windy, actually that helped as it was blowing the grass about and even though it had rained a fair bit last night it did dry the top off for me, so it was a toss up between hoover or mower, no contest really was there….Before and very long, a view from my chair that was really getting my backup …

Now, thats better and actually wasn’t hard to do, nope I didn’t use hubby’s petrol mower, I fetched my trusty Black and Decker out….

As you can see I have a new line in plants and you can find it listed under T for Toffee………Sorry about the pic, all my own fault for facing the sun, lol….


Think he feels safer off the grass, lets hope he isn’t laying on one of my hellebores or some newly sprouting bulbs…..


Sorted so I guess I better get the hoover out now…….

Always feels good to get the first cut done especially as we could get a lot more rain yet so may be a while bfore it can be cut again.

its amazing how good the gardens look after their haircuts, looks really tidy now Lincslass :O) Mine is too wet so it will have to stay as it is. But not really that much grass to cut these days as every year a little bit more goes. lol. Lovely to see the sun shining again, nice morning here but wind has got up again and the clouds are looming overhead once more.

Well done Sue ... too cold and windy lately for me to stay long outdoors !

It looks so much better now with the grass all one length and the edges neat and tidy. The borders look very spic and span too. You got a good job done there Lincs.

I really envy you Lincslass as my grass is just so wet. It was covered with snow this morning.

Hello Lincslass - we cut our front lawn very lightly this am - a big decision but it paid off - toffee looks as if he is enjoying his session in the border - your garden looks good - Jane

Lawn looks really smart now. You were lucky to get the chance to do it. I don't think ours will EVER dry out again!!!

Rose I am so glad I took that opportunity, its rained every day since and we are sodden once again, I'm attempting my Big Birdwatch Count but even the birds are sheltering, typical isn't it, normally we get loads visiting...

31 Jan, 2016

 

We only saw half a dozen birds during the hour we chose. Sods Law, after I entered the count, no end decided to visit. We have a very aggressive blackbird in the garden though, that chased the others off, even the pigeons!! I have had to spread the food over two lawns so the others get a fighting chance at some.

It looks much better now that you've cut it :) I'm glad you had a chance to do it. I like your Hellebore :)
and Toffee :D

I would need snow shoes to stop me sinking if I tried to cut my lawn now! Well done, your garden looks great and I do like your Toffee plant :)

Obviously we have no lawn on our balcony, LOL!, but there is a patch of grass, (can't call it a lawn!), in front of us that the town council cuts pretty frequently but it's really out of hand now with the grass about as tall as it can get! The winter has been so mild & warm for the most part that the grass has never really stopped growing. In a few places around town I see the grass has been cut by the council workers & ours could really do with a good cut!

Your lawn looks so much better now it's been cut! It does show off your garden much better now. :-))
