Six oclock on Saturday night and there is a symphony of lawnmowers buzzing outside my windows. (Punctuated by the occasional shout from the neighbors where they are apparently watching a football game…. or playing the worlds most exciting round of Monopoly.)
Maybe its the frost advisory for tonight that has everyone out trimming the lawns, hoping its the last time for months. So that in a few months when the snow (finally) melts, a neatly manicured lawn appears.
And for those who werent ready for frost, thats probably my fault. We had our sprinkler system installed last week and it isnt even hooked up yet. But we wouldnt want to spend all that money and then be able to use the thing to water the grass seeds well have to toss down to try to save the lawn in the spots where they dug. Although, really, the lawn looks no worse than it did before they started. Which is why we had the sprinklers put in in the first place.
Maybe my plans to go out this week and buy a new bush to replace the one I killed arent the wisest.
I like fall. But Im ready for Indian Summer. Just to get a few things finished.
