For many of us in the states our lawn mowing days will soon be coming to an end. For our friends in Australia, Spring is just arriving and lawn mowing days just beginning.
As mush as I love the smell of freshly cut grass it’s always nice to have a break from that weekly chore.
Yes, most of us would consider it a chore. But, do you REMEMBER WHEN lawn mowers looked like this?
They required no gas or electricity, just a lot of man (or woman) power. Now that’s a chore! Have any of you ever mowed with a push mower? I have.
I have two vintage push mowers. Both of them sport a bit of my favorite color, red. Earlier this year this one was buried behind Larkspur. Notice the bits of green in the dirt? Larkspur already coming back.
A couple of weeks ago I picked up this cute music book at D.I.
I was thumbing through the pages when this song caught my eye.
I like to hear the mover, Ric-a-tic-a-tic, ric-a-tic-a-tic,
As it goes fast and slow – er, Ric-a-tic-a-tic-a-tic-a-tic-tic-tic.
The whirl –ing blades are bright and keen: It leaves our lawn all smooth and green. I
like to hear the mow – er, Ric-a-tic-a-tic, ric-a-tic-a-tic.
I wonder what the Lawn Mower song would say if it was written for todays mowers?
My mowers have now become yard art. Their blades are not so bright and keen. I wonder if they miss making that sound of ric-a-tic-a-tic?
p.s I would like to thank Boogieboard Cottage for featuring my Art Board from last weeks link party. I so appreciate it!!
I will be partying with:
