Come mow with me

Mow, mow, mow the yard
it’s easy as you please
up, down, all around
with Johnny it’s a breeze!

(please sing to the tune of Row, row, row your boat!)

Johnny is feeling so much better now. We found a traveling “spa” to come and give him a tune-up. The past three times I’ve mowed the yards I’ve had to jump start him. Poor guy. Now he has a new battery, his blades are sharpened, and he has a new oil filter. He runs like new!

So, ride along with me as I mow the side front yard. You can see just how much grass we have, and that’s only the front! Not too shabby for all one-handed driving if I have to say so myself!

 

I had to dodge several interesting mushrooms as I rode along:

I love this one because its veil (the part that covers the gills before the mushroom is fully open) is hanging like a pretty, frilly skirt around its stem.

We finally have some mushrooms coming up and I’ll be sharing some more photos of them with you tomorrow. Mushrooms are fascinating! Well, at least to me they are.

I hope you all enjoyed your ride!

Oh Lynne,
I did enjoy the ride; well, I sort of enjoyed the ride. The mom in me kept whispering,“Yikes, she is taking a video and driving a lawn mower.” The mushrooms are beautful; I am glad that they survived the mowing. The first one looks like a perfect spot for one of your fairies.

Mr. Toad and I were hangin’ on tight! Did you hear us holloring at you to use both hands and to slow down going around those corners??? I’m getting pretty good at the backseat driver thing with KT!

Thanks for the lawn mower ride!  It was fun.
