It's that time of year again. All our lawns turn beige, and stop growing.
I don't mind the 'stop growing' part, but beige crunchy grass is not my Tasse de Thé..
We are promised rain, and maybe even storms, for this week so perhaps some green will return.
Of course just because the grass doesn't grow, it doesn't mean that everything else stops. The grass still has to be mowed, as annoying foot-tall spindly yellow flowering weeds soon spring up everywhere, making the lawns look a total mess.
I can't really complain. It takes me just 40 minutes to mow with Rory (my ride-on mower), and another 20 minutes with the ordinary mower. One hour a week to mow the whole caboodle ain't so bad.
I can hear the sound of distant thunder as I write. Rain may be on its way!
(5 mins later) And it was! And boy did it rain!
