Better lawns and gardens
The weather has been unseasonably cool. We broke all records with a low of 56 degrees yesterday. The grass is greener than ever and the vegetable garden is gifting us with an abundance of crops.
We live in a neighborhood where all the men take pride in their lawns and generally mow on weekends. I love the green blanket of zoysia that stretches yard to yard, up and down the block. Our neighborhood can't measure up to this one, though.
We took a short cut the other day while driving and came upon this house with very little grass to cut. I yelled for hubby to stop, and I snapped this photo. The entire lawn was planted in petunias, I think.
I thought it was beautiful, Bill thought it was a little too much. What do you think? Would you like to be neighbors with this homeowner?
