4:53 PM: 'tis the season
my vietnamese neighbor is singing while doing lawn maintenance. it would be completely charming if it wasn't accompanied by a horrible cacophony of lawnmowers, trimmers & edgers.
i hired "the limber luddite" to hack the weeds out of the back yard & mow the lawn. i hired him because he uses a reel mower and a pickaxe. i wish more people did. someday i'll tear out the lawn entirely and do something more interesting with it, like susan, who should totally blog about her texas wildflowers.
