Robert Louis Stevenson Verse

Maybe this will make you feel a little cooler. We had 20 minutes of a nice rain yesterday and today I mowed my front yard. I haven't mowed it in 5 weeks because it hardly grew because of the heatwave. I have always loved this image paired with the Robert Louis Stevenson verse.

Beautiful verse and graphic. I am thankful to live in a place where we have different seasons. Sure, we complain sometimes, but after one season, I'm really ready for a change. Already looking forward to fall! We managed to go 3 weeks between lawn mowing, but you really did great, Rosemary.

Debra -- I do too and this one is so charming. Glad you like it too. xo, Rosemary

Pam -- When I said I cut the grass I should have said I cut the weeds. They never stopped growing after the grass turned brown. I think 5 weeks between mowings is the longest I've ever gone. I am so happy to have my lawn tractor back in service again. Finding my current repair man and his son were the greatest find. They are definitely keepers. xo, Rosemary
