Grass Cutting Time
We are entering one of my favorite times of the year - spring in the south has no comparison. I love seeing the plants peeking up out of the ground and the greening of the grass, the trees, everything! It is also this time of year that I am enjoying cutting the grass. It is still a new thing to do and I'm not worn out with other things. This gives me a good reason to be outside and enjoying the sunny days. It gives me a chance to sit and think...or not. Grass cutting is instant gratification - something shaggy is immediately tamed and shaped and looks more manicured. I know that at some later date I will be complaining of the dustiness, the continual need to mow, the speed at which the grass is growing and I'm struggling to keep up. However, right now, it is a welcome respite from the cold, grey, miserable times. There is renewed hope for beauty and the perpetual reassurance that all moves forward and the cycle continues.
