Do you have any idea how sweet all of you are? I miss posting once on Sunday and I started to receive all kinds of emails to see if I was all right. Yep, better then all right just got a little busy with the great outdoors. Seems like we were hit with spring and summer all at once and around our home that means plenty of outside work to be done.
That is unless you’re this character who prefers to roll around in dirt and hang out in the shade. No I don’t worry about the dirt because as soon as Dylan dries off it all falls out of his hair hopefully outside. Besides he’s a dog, he likes being in dirt!
Last weekend was one of those fifty center days, that’s the best kind of day in New England that you don’t pass on by staying inside.
I kept telling Debra over at 5th and State that I would send her pictures of our property and I got to thinking maybe you guys might like to see as well. You see all that grass it all gets mowed by yours truly! Saturday was absolutely gorgeous out and I did it all in one day and ended up a little crispy but it was so worth it to be back outside in shorts with the feel of the sun on my face.
With every turn of the tractor the scent of wild honeysuckle was in the air!
We’re fortunate enough to have wild honeysuckle in both pink and white and it’s everywhere on our property welcoming in the hummingbirds with its sweet scent.
To mow this entire place it takes anywhere from 6 – 10 hours depending on how fast you’re going. Funny but the pace always picks up the longer you’ve been at it.
Since our property is big and can be overwhelming I break the yard up into what I call rooms rather then trying to do the whole thing at once.
This place has to be mowed almost twice a week and I can run out and hop on our tractor for an hour and get at least two “rooms” mowed. Believe it or not it’s very relaxing it's a chance to clear your head.
Out yonder is my garden room I’m working on, it’s a work in progress!
Most of our property is forested and extremely hilly. Sorry our house looks crooked in most of the pictures must have been the way I was sitting on the tractor, trust me our home sits straight.
After mowing several acres at the end of the day there’s nothing I would rather be doing then what this guy is doing, enjoying a nap in the shade, time to get our hammock up!
So there’s part of our property and I hope you’ll understand during the summer if I don’t always have time to post life is extra busy around here. But never fear I’ll always be about leaving comments!
I hope you all have a really wonderful Memorial Day weekend and be safe!
