The Driveway Gets a Haircut

Our spring was so cool and wet, and once the sun came out, the grasses and weeds absolutely took off running.  Well, okay, growing. It seemed as if they grew a foot a day. Our friend Loren, who has a tractor, planned to come over as he usually does. But then the rains came back, and then the sun, and then more rain; by the time it was dry enough to mow yesterday, the grass and weeds were unbelievably high. We usually get them cut down in May!

This is how tall the grass, weeds, and blackberries were as I drove up.

I love the way the sun’s rays were shining through the Sakura trees…even get small kine rainbow down low.

So tall, yeah?


The robin was foraging for worms in the driveway.


Yay! Loren’s here!!  See him down at the bottom of the pasture?



You probably can’t see him, but Loren is in there, coming back down the driveway.


He’s right in that small kine green area  in the middle of the photo.


He’s just under the Sakura tree on the right.



Going downhill later, ho da difference!!


Big change, yeah?


And when I came home again, ‘way better than it was. We still have to use the weed-whacker on the right hand side and around the trees, but at least the majority of the tall everything is gone.


I can see around the corner! And now, when everything starts to get dry, the fire danger will be much less, too.


We’re so grateful to Loren and his tractor. He does this for us every year. He’s 79 years old and still going strong.
