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.
