After I got home, I noticed that Harry had mowed the back and front lawn – yay! When it gets so long that you can’t find the dog’s toys (or the dog) It’s clearly time to mow! It looks like a yard now and not just a big field of grass and weeds. We have a LOT of dandelions and there’s a big patch of ugly in one corner which is mostly dead grass with a nice soft pile of dirt that is now sprouting a very healthy crop of field grass and weeds and even some prairie flowers.
LaLa LOVES to dig around in there and she’s always finding some disgusting molding yard trash that was buried long long ago. I’m not sure what happened to the yard; you can tell at one time someone took a lot of care with it. There are still some nice healthy patches of grass and a spot for a flower bed, now dusty and disused.
The yard sure could use some love… I wish I had time – I had big plans to put in a garden and bunch of flowers, but so far I've spent all my time on the bake shop, so no yard work so far except for viciously pulling out dandelions with extreme prejudice!
I don’t know why I hate them exactly, but I really take exception to all the dandelions. I love pulling those little uglies out and watching them shrivel up and die! Bahahahahah… I feel so powerful when I pull weeds! And of course LaLa loves it when I’m in the yard. All of the weed pulling leaves little LaLa shaped holes for her to stick her nose into and dig and make bigger. I think she thinks she’s helping.
