I Have Grass!
I have a new passion - yardwork! I used to hate gardening, so I never did it. All I ever did was mow, and only when the neighbors complained, or when Holly nagged. But now, since we bought our own home last December I can't stop. Last week I planted some grass seed in bare spots on the lawn. I watered those spots twice and day, and today, I laid down on the lawn and noticed tiny, tiny sprouts of grass. I can't express how excited I was! I can't wait to water those sprouts. I've been mowing, hedging, moving mulch, planting flowers, fertilizing, watering, and raking. Oh, and I have my own tool shed! It's big and red. We also have a grapevine. We have a tree with a Robin's nest. Last week two eggs hatched. I've been checking on them every day. One day I got too close - the mama bird attacked my head! I've bought a bird bath, and I'm pricing bird feeders. Out back I have a grill, patio furniture, a firebowl, and a hammock. I love spring now. I notice new life everywhere. I am the master of my domain. The king of the castle. the lord of the manor. What a life!
