Today was the community Easter Egg Hunt. I took Lady Bug to gather eggs with the other children in the neighborhood. She had tons of fun running around in the grass at the park. I snapped a bunch of pictures of her looking for the hidden eggs.
The grass looked soo vibrant in all of the pictures. It reminded me of a time I went to visit family in Tennessee and saw a man spraying green onto the grass in front of a business. I thought it was pretty strange at first. Then I saw another person spraying the same green substance onto his front lawn. I appreciate a nice looking lawn, but I’ve never considered faking it with spray paint.
It was pretty warm this afternoon. Lady Bug and I needed a fun way to cool off. I turned on the sprinklers in our back yard and we put on our swim suits. Lady Bug and I had a blast running through the sprinklers. The lawn needed the extra water. I hate when the grass gets too dry so I figured it couldn’t hurt it.
We ran through the water for a good fifteen minutes. It felt great having the cool water splash up against our skin. It reminded me of when I was her age and would run outside in our sprinklers. By the time we were finished we were sopping wet and the grass had a good drink. Everyone was happy.
The weeds in my back yard are really frustrating me. There is a corner in the back that I just can’t seem to get a handle on. I’ve tried pulling them, spraying them, you name it I’ve done it. I’m at a loss as for what to do to get rid of them. I’d like my lawn to be free of weeds but I’m almost at the point of giving up.
I guess now is the time for me to either do a bunch more research on weed control or call out the big guys to see what they can suggest. I wonder if I can get a consultation and see if they can give me some advice. I might be better off just having them rip everything out and starting over. Renovating the back yard could be a fun project.
