The yard police won't be sending me a letter this week, thanks to a good neighbor. He came across the street yesterday afternoon with his heavy duty riding lawnmower, which handily gobbled up the overgrowth in both front and back yards. What a difference! It's safe to walk about, again.
I fear a new lawnmower is in my future. The one I've used for years, which was already well used when I acquired it, has seen its best days. It's almost too heavy for me to use, even if it is self-propelled. I hope I can find a lighter weight one which has enough power to tame my jungle.
I still need to use the trimmer around the edges, but that's a task for later -- after the tax returns are filed.
Tomorrow is also a day.
