...my front lawn!
Peoples I am busy right now trying to get my yard work done while the temperatures outside are favorable for human life. I only have maybe two weeks left before the summer heat and horrific humidity take hold rendering life outside inhabitable. After that point the best I can do for my yard is mow it once a week at dusk to avoid heat stoke and sun poisoning.
At the local small engine shop where I go to get my piddly pruning shears and other dull bits of metal sharpened I always enjoy seeing this vintage Lawn Boy mower that hangs out in the lobby:
Gosh it's gorgeous! I love it's wonky misaligned front wheels. The plaid clad man on the cover of the Household Magazine (March 1957) seen above up top, is using a Lawn Boy for leaning.
Here is an ad I came across on the nets promoting the mowing luxury of a Lawn Boy!
And this gal looks quite fetching with her extremely cinched belt while pushing her Lawn Boy...with teeth!
I can't stand yard work. You just can't fight Mother Nature. I have surely tried. We have an immensely invasive weed, greenbrier, that we have not been able to defeat no matter how many we pull, dig up, or poison.
I would love to be able to show you all a pristine manicured yard when I am finished but truthfully my "after" picture would be most people's "before". I am just doing my best to keep away the code enforcement folks.
So, with all that being said, I will be away from this here blog for a bit, dealing with my weeds...which is what my whole yard is really...one big weedy mess.
Sometimes I think the best solve for it is a can of gasoline and a match.
