First cut

Lawn mowers out today!
Harry has three mowers, four if you count the tractor mower. He has been itching to get started & today is the day.
Honestly the mowing of the grass dominates our lives in the summer. Sometimes he hasn't time to go out somewhere because he will get behind mowing, it's like Blackpool Tower you start at the top & by the time you have finished the first one wants doing!
He loves it though & I must admit the lawns do look good. Strangely he has a ride on one but prefers to push his favourite round so he can get in every corner!

Three good things:
1. I have been tidying the garden. Pulling up last years geraniums out of the pots. Sometimes they survive the winter but this year they are well & truly dead.
2. I still can't believe how tidy the house is since we lost Lily poor girl but I am appreciating it.
3. Masterchef is on every night this week except tomorrow!
That's dedication! Good capture

The push one is usually needed after the ride on one to tidy up the fiddly bits. Looks like you have a lot of grass

Such a good job Harry enjoys doing it. It would be a terrible chore if he didn't!! DIdn't realise Masterchef was on tonight thanks for the tipoff!

A super shot. We gave our lawn it's first cut at the weekend

Strange for us that your lawns can be ignored over the winter, although in the southern part of the South Island it is much the same. It’s a big area to mow and good he has the ride on mower if he needs it. A lovely image to see.

I like cutting the grass too but we have the guinea pigs outside in the summer who munch some of the grass...maybe a long line with 50 guinea pigs...they would do the job! hahahaha and free poop for the grass too!

Nice to see a man at work and doing a job he enjoys doing ! Been a lovely day today but getting colder this evening ! Gary did our lawns yesterday - heavy going as the grass was long and rather wet ! - should be better next time !

Nice to see a man happy in his work and that’s a lovely blue sky.

Nice capture, Pat. Your lawns look good. Tidying the garden is what I did this afternoon; so much to do...

What a beautiful spring shot! And what a lot of grass to mow!

@chris17 That is the perfect word Christine, dedication!

@mave Yes we do Mave, goes all round the house too! A field at the back but he sits on a tractor to do that thank goodness!

@thistle What great cooks in this series Joyce, think it's the best one yet! Yes a good job he enjoys it!
March 26th, 2018  
@carolmw Hope we don't rue the day & it's all covered in snow at the weekend!
March 26th, 2018  
@dide oh wow do your lawns need mowing all year round then, a nightmare! Ours only need doing from around now to about October & that's later than it used to be.
March 26th, 2018  
@huvesaker oh how funny that would look Bo, I like that idea but in the winter how would you feed the little blighters? Would be like having to store grass in some form to feed them all winter! Same as cows & we've had enough if that in the past!

@beryl yes it's hard going at first although ours wasn't that long, he on,y took the top off. So much tidier it looks too. Hoping he will do the front lawn tomorrow before Easter & visitors,
March 26th, 2018  
@suesmith He's very happy Sue, he loves mowing!
March 26th, 2018  
@gijsje yes thevgardens look a bit of a mess at this time if year, it was nice pottering outside today & it's very satisfying once you get started isn't it's.
March 26th, 2018  
@quietpurplehaze Oh thus us only a fraction Hazel, all round the house but he does certain sections at a time so not too bad!
March 26th, 2018  
John was like that too with our big property - its like they are all on their own and can think while they work. It is nice to see a mown lawn though.
March 26th, 2018  
Good capture of a seasonal chore - ours is much smaller but needs doing all year round, it does slow down a little in winter though.
March 26th, 2018  
@maggiemae Yes I agree, Harry is exactly like that! Weird isn't it?
March 26th, 2018  
@chikadnz I never thought of year round growth before!
March 26th, 2018  
Send him round to our house please, I hate mowing the lawn. We had lots of rain last week and the grass has grown like wildfire now
March 26th, 2018  
Oh my! How wonderful that he loves to mow!
March 27th, 2018  
You have so much grass to mow.
I think you need a ride on.lol
A nice capture,the smell of fresh cut grass is lovely.

How funny, my husband did our first lawn cut of the year yesterday too! Ours is still very shaggy, it will take a few cuts to get it neat but at last it was dry enough to make the attempt!
