Since it seems that the drought we have had all summer long is finally over, and it’s rained a great deal of late, it’s like looking at summer all over again since the new growth of grass is once again green. It is a bit too late for our poor farmers, but now at least I can walk outside barefoot and not have my feet feel like I am walking on straw.
The new growth of grass is so vibrant green, it looks so or surreal compared to the dry brown grass we have had for most of the summer. My gardens suffered tremendously through the summer though and the vegetable yield has been next to nothing. It’s too late in the year to start over again, so now all I can do is start planning for next spring.
With the new grass comes mowing, of course, and the smell of fresh mowed grass is such a welcome smell. To be honest, I don’t even mind grass being tracked in by the dog or the kids, which is saying quite a bit. I’m enjoying the last months of summer now and would like to have a end of summer yard party soon, now that the burn bans have been lifted, so we can have a fire in the fire pit.
