That looks better!


It may not yet be Croquet standard, but it looks much better than before. Well done Rory; he started first go. I also managed to mow Haddock's, but with the ordinary mower.

    1. It was good to have it done; even if it didn't really need it.

    1. That's only part of it, there's a lot more up behind the house!

  3. Like when you ask a barber for a tidy up, and not really any length cut off. Rory powered into action then.

    1. Exactly that Andrew, everything is now the same length; for a week or so!

  4. Great mowing. You're one up on us. Still too cold here to even think of sitting in the sun.

    1. It was like that here only a few days ago. Amazing what a couple of dry sunny days will do.

  6. Looks good. Ours is still far too sodden to attempt even walking on it let alone cut it.

    1. Rory ejects by the side, our other one collects via the rear and contributes.

  9. That's a lot of grass to cut! I trust that you enjoyed riding on Rory. Didn't he require lubrication?

    1. Kind words, a damp rag, and gentle persuasion.

    1. It makes all the difference to a garden. Everything else can be a total mess, but as long as the lawn is mowed....

  11. Your land is very nice and flat and easily taken care of with a riding lawn mower.

    1. I've just been mowing up at the barn and builders' lorries have left deep ruts in the lawns.... not so nice!

    1. The landscape here is 'rolling'; nothing too mountainous, and nothing too flat. I find it perfect.

  15. Very straight lines, I see. Much practice, no?

    1. It looks better if they're straight. It shows more when the grass is more lush.

  16. I bet it smells wonderful after mowing
