One of my favorite days of spring has just passed.It’s the day when we cut the grass for the first time each year.After a winter of brownness and then the grass (and weeds) start to sprout the farm starts to look a little straggly.After the first mowing of the season everything looks a thousand times better.It makes me feel much better about all the many projects and chores that are required to keep this place in check.
Then after a day or so, reality sets in. To keep the fields and lawn in shape, we have to cut this shit every two weeks and I go right back to being overwhelmed. But, it's a nice feeling for a day or two.
Every year there's one section of lawn outside the courtyard we don't cut until later. These beautiful little yellow flowers bloom each year. They remain for almost a month. I don't know what they are, but they're really nice to have around. If you know what they are, let me know.
